Reward offered for the return of blind D-Day veteran's lost medals

Recommended Posts

A £5000 reward has been offered for the return of Alfred Barlow's medals, which were lost after a visit to the men's room at Norton Canes services on the M6 Toll just North of Birmingham on June 8th, after returning from a pilgrimage to Normandy. Mr Barlow, who is blind and turned 96 yesterday, served with 3rd Reconnaissance (Recce) Regiment, 3rd Division, and landed on Sword Beach at 10am on D-Day, June 6 1944.

 

The four medals lost are the 1939-1945 Star, the France & Germany Star, the 1939-1945 War Medal and the Palestine Medal. Anyone with information on the return of the medals is asked to contact the sight loss charity on the free Blind Veterans UK hotline on 0800 389 7979.
