Default Stolen DLI collection!

Hi all,

I was sent the e-mail below by the webmaster of the Militaria Mart. Hopefully, this forum can do its bit to try to help get these items back to their proud owner.

I'm not sure where such a message should be posted but perhaps a moderator would be kind enough to make it prominent "sticky"?
