Historic knife stolen from museum

First published in News by

A HISTORIC piece of First World War memorabilia has been stolen from a Canvey museum.

The trench knife was taken from its display case at the Bay Military Museum, in Western Esplanade, while volunteers were showing people round.

Allan Reed, museum volunteer, said it was a significant and important part of Essex’s military history.

It has the markings GMH Stealing, Essex Reg 1916 inscribed on it and has a knuckle duster grip and has Sheffield Steel and Vulcan on the blade.

It was taken sometime between 10am and 1.15pm on Monday, May 5.

Anybody with any information about the theft, or who may have been offered the item for sale is asked to contact Pc Lisa-Ann Gore.

She said: "The museum would like to get the piece back as it is very important to them. It is also a weapon and we would like to get it back in safe hands. I would urge anyone with any information to contact me as soon as possible.”

Anybody that can help is asked to contact Pc Gore at Rayleigh on Essex Police 101 or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

You are so full of hate and sh1t aren't you.

What's this, a new name.

I like that you hate me because i'd rather be hated by thick muscle bound yobs like you than decent people.

The fact that you hate me is a matter of indifference. You are an idiot.

You hate people you don't even know. And there are worse people at large out there killing others but you hate me.

Is it because I tell the truth and post it under my own name instead of being a muscle bound yob acting big but hiding behind a pseudonym.

Grow up thick numpty,

Oh as for northerners, I'd love to see you take your ugly muscle bound body up north and confront some real men.

Or perhaps you're a musclebound woman. Even worse.

Ironic isn't it.

I make a perfectly innocent comment and some moron responds with hate and not with any relevance to the story,

A story about a war that involved genuinely brave men who fought and died for this country in order to preserve it for braindeads like this absolute scutter above.

Men whom this individual could never be compared with in a million years, one of whom included my grandfather who fortunately was lucky enough to return.

If idiots like this actually put their bodies to good use rather than filling them full of steroid cr@p, they might be some use to society.

As it is, people like this aren't worth Jack and are of no consequence.

Probably has about as much REAL muscle in his/her body as a jellyfish.

They don't impress or intimidate me. Filling your body full of shyte like that just shows in their mentality, hence this idiot making this comment above.

Totally devoid of any grey matter and actually quite intimidated by genuinely strong women,

Hide behind your anonymity coward.
