In response to a question by Labour MP for Liverpool Wavertree, Luciana Berger, the MoD have released a list of items that have been stolen from the beginning of May last year to the end of February this year.
Of course, theft is never funny but one or two items do make for amusing reading.
Most of the newspapers went for the big and bulky items like a helicopter rotor turner, Bedford truck, inflatable boat and a trailer full of mountain bikes but the one that caught my eye was a theft of two swords from RMP Southwick Park.
RMP of course stands for Royal Military Police, have a look at the address on Regimental Headquarters web site here
I am only teasing of course, we don’t know the circumstances, still, lets not let the facts get in the way of an amusing wind up!
The full list can be found here but I have created a few sorted and summarised files below.
What is of concern though, is the theft of weapon sights, night vision equipment and medical supplies
