The theft occurred on Monday November 2, after a man was loading his car with historic-looking battle items outside the 4th St Albans Scout Group’s Riverside Road hut at 7.40pm.

He left a box containing a 17th century steel helmet, replica sword and dagger and 17th century clothing by his car while he went to collect other boxes.

But when he returned to the vehicle, the box had been taken.

PC Ben Kirby from the safer neighbourhood team, investigating, said: “I would appeal to anyone in the area at the time and saw what happened or anyone who had any information on where these items may be now to please contact me.”
