Shocking to see if true but I do wonder how accurate the report is?

If the Daily Fail can't even get the picture of the unit right, I don't have much confidence that they can get details of the crime right.

It's in the papers - it must be true.

I always thought if you saw it on the net then it was true! Well, unless your Trump and then everything is fake news unless he said it!!! Sorry, for my lapse of courtesy.

However, being serious, that is very sad if true.

No, unfortunately, just mention of swords, a bronze "skull and crossbones" centre piece, a few other items.

Sad. A couple of years ago my daughter said that there were some medals stolen from the HAC museum - had to be an inside job - as it is in the Regimental lines.

Its been all over the unoffical army FB page and other sites all week so it is true.

One story was that the guard did not conduct any roving patrols that night.
