A World War Two veteran's medal has been stolen during a burglary in Dudley.
The medal was taken from a house on Rifle Street, Hurst Hill, in Sedgley, on Friday. It had been left to Mitchell Flavell by his grandfather, and was one of many items taken by when the semi-detached house was burgled between 8am and 3pm.
Watches, a laptop, cameras, mobile phones, TVs, jewellery, and a Nintendo Wii games console were all stolen.
Mr Flavell, 26, said: "I am just desperate to get these items back. I'd urge anyone who has been offered a World War Two medal or pocket watch for sale to come forward and tell police.
"At this stage I just want them returned as they mean so much, and it's upsetting that someone can just come into your home and take them."
Detective Sergeant Mark Rushton, from Dudley CID, who is investigating the burglary, said: "To come home and find that such precious possessions have been stolen is distressing.
"We have seen a couple of burglaries in the Sedgley area over recent days where offenders have forced their way in through back doors, and we are keen to ensure local people secure their property at all times.
"We urge residents to be vigilant and if you see anyone acting suspiciously to let us know."
Anyone with information is urged to contact Dudley CID on 0345 113 5000 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
