Two medals from the Zulu War with a combined value of £45,000 have been stolen from a household in Tenterden.

The pair was stolen on May 1 by a man who visited the home of a member of the Zulu Historian Society Group in Woodchurch Road, Tenterden.

The man is described as a white man, aged 50 to 60 years old and was very smartly dressed wearing smart brown shoes and was very knowledgeable about the Zulu War.

He turned up unannounced and said he was interested in joining the group, and showed the victim a number of artefacts and medals.

The owner of the medals only recently noticed them missing, and said the sentimental value of the items was more significant and would like them to be returned.

Anyone with information about the theft, or the whereabouts of the medals is asked to contact PC Philip Butcher from the Ashford Neighbourhood Team on 101.

Alternatively, contact Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
