They stole a silver-plated spoon commemorating the Queen’s silver jubilee, a silver napkin ring engraved with the initials ‘RJB’, a silver pitch pipe used by musicians to tune instruments and a set of gold-plated cufflinks engraved with the initials ‘VSOE’.

Det Con James Kier, from the St Albans Local Crime Unit, said: “These items are of great sentimental value to the victim so I would urge anyone who recognises them, either through being offered them for sale or by seeing them in an auction lot, to please contact me on 101.”
