The Green Jackets Museum burglary

On the night of 7/8th Febuary 1963 the museums of the Rifle Brigade and the 60th were burgled. Nothing was taken from the 60th museum, but the Rifle Brigade museum suffered considerably. Among the objects taken were Sir Neil Campbell's medals and memorabilia, including a miniature of Sir Neil in Rifle uniform., and a silver snuffbox belonging to the Clerk group. Clerk is the fellow who left his lieutenant's dolman to prosperity; one of the very few items of the uniform of the regiment we know of.
