Similar stealing of brass/bronze plaques (mainly WW1) occurred here a few years ago. Replacements were re-cast in resin in some cases. And remain untouched.

Hello Ian,
Well with the increasing price of metals I'm not surprised really, but, I do think it is a very sad state when people steal or damage a memorial, as I said, I wish people would leave them alone.
Regards Frank

Mike, I am confused, when you say stolen a couple of times, was that stolen and subsequently recovered, before being stolen again, or, stolen from the original thief by yet another thief?:ohmy:

Hi Frank.....

I agree about original but I know of a memorial which was made out of brass and has been stolen a couple of times so they switched to cast aluminum and had it painted brass and it has not been stolen yet after 10 years..... The original brass one is inside the building it represents.....

AC White - possibly Alonzo Maynard Charles White? Need to pull his papers
Gordon Wood - the Wood you refer to is George Edward Boileau Wood, still a mystery, possibly Gordon Wood never left England
J Young - agree on that match, need to pull papers

Boultbee is Cpl 24487 22 coy IY. SAFF has his surname as Baultbee - has Palmer copied this?

No confusion intended. Indeed, in one example (along the network upon which I trek home from the range), there is one WW2 memorial plaque which had indeed been stolen, replaced, stolen, replaced again - and finally replaced by a cast resin version. Happily, still there as of Saturday last.

My useful I.Y. CD does not show anything for "Baultbee, P.D.": however, it does show "24486 Cpl. Boultbee, Philip Duncan" of 22 Coy., 2 Bn., IY. (note the regimental number differs by one digit).
Palmer and SAFF both show "24487 Baultbee, P., Cpl., Died of Disease, Aliwal North, 19.2.01. 2nd I.Y."
While I willingly spend the time necessary to trawl through my sources to add whatever details I can about those Soldiers, sometimes an Ouija board might be handy. No disrespect intended to those men who fell.

IL.
