Military museum in hot water over missing medals..<br />
<br />
A woman whose father and grandfather donated their highly-valuable gallantry medals to an army museum is furious they have disappeared having been suspiciously substituted for duplicates.<br />
<br />
Susan Bond, whose husband Richard is a retired crown court judge, discovered the two Military Cross groups at the The Royal Green Jackets Museum are not the ones bequeathed to them after one set appeared on the open market.<br />
<br />
Mrs Bond confronted the trustees at the museum, whose former Colonel-in-Chief was the Queen, but the 70-year-old has been left dismayed at their 'indifferent' response at the loss which they have been unable to properly explain.<br />
<br />
The owners - the museum based in Winchester, Hants - said they were satisfied that no criminal activity had taken place and the police investigation came to nothing.
