The lost medals are for service in Korea, Cyprus and Suez. Hull Trains have launched the appeal to try and reunite the veteran with their medals.“We often find items on board that customers have left behind and we make every effort to return them to their owners,” Debbie Birch, Head of HR at Hull Trains, told the Hull Daily Mail.“To help with this, we have recently installed CCTV on all our units which, as well as improving security, has also helped us enormously in identifying people that have misplaced or forgotten items.“We are particularly keen to reunite these medals with their owner as we’re sure they are of sentimental value and deserve to be reclaimed.”Meanwhile, mystery surrounds this heartbreaking photo of a veteran marching alone at a Victory Parade. Earlier this year, this US veteran penned a brilliant response to a misogynistic note left on her car. center_img LostBox, an online lost and found service, which has reunited more than 35,000 lost items, shared a photo of the medals on Twitter.“The medals are a United Nations Service Medal for Korea, a General Service Medal with Cyprus and Canal,” they posted.“Zone (Suez) bars, a Hong Kong Service medal, an RAF National Service Medal and a National Service Medal.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
