|"We will remember them....and steal their memorials"|
........Thieves stole memorial plaques from a Catholic Church in Swansea, here is the BBC report:-
Police say they were stolen between 19:00 BST last Thursday and 15:00 BST last Friday.
Father Cyril Thadathil said the congregation was devastated.
He said the thieves had taken all of the plaques at the memorial garden, many of which paid tribute to men who served in World War II.
Said Parish priest, Father Cyril Thadathil"It's not about money because it's the memories and dignity of human life”
"As soon as I saw it I was upset."
He said that when he told worshippers what had happened "there was a great silence in church and many of them actually cried".
He also appealed to the thieves to return the plaques.
"If possible please do return them to the church because it's not about money because it's the memories and dignity of human life," he added.
Ronald Morgan, 75, of Gendros, Swansea, said the timing of the thefts made it even more poignant, with remembrance services taking place in November.
"There were a lot of people whose names are ex-military personnel and their husbands and grandfather who were in memory," he added.
These are the times in which we live; our children and grandchildren will have to face much worse; pray for them and pray for the thieves.
