Posted: 13/01/2011 19:37 | News Home

Peter Owen, Wilfred Owen's nephew, believes that these items have been stolen from his house, sometime last year.

A brief description of the Military Cross and cigarette case follows:-

1) The Military Cross is engraved on the reverse side to Wilfred E.S. Owen and the Fonsomme Line, where he won the medal. It is boxed in a purple case together with the ribbon and a chain.

2) A cigarette case monogrammed with Wilfred Owens’s initials and a silver mark circa 1893, which is the date of his birth.

Whoever took these may try to sell either of them; his Military Cross in particular.

Mr Owen would be very grateful should anyone have any information. He can be contacted through the W.O.A website woa@1914-18.co.uk or wilfredowen1918@googlemail.com.
