Default STOLEN: Silver & ivory Robertsons (UK)

To the UK members, please look out for a set of silver and ivory Robertsons.

I was travelling up to London from Brighton by train this evening and dozed off when we stopped at East Croydon. I checked to make sure they were still in place at Clapham Junction but they were gone. The pipes were in a Bagpiper Backpack trolley case underneath my seat. Gone too are two chanters, two practice chanters, Korg tuner, etc. Absolutely gutted.
Any news please let me know on UK 07805650468.

Horrible thing to happen
I would imagine as it's a train station there will be cctv footage.

Train CCTV is read by the police and can take up to a week to be viewed. They have all the details and I'm now waiting.
Station CCTV is also a possibility but not hopeful as it was rush hour and there are a number of exits from the station or platforms.
Not giving up!

Lord people can suck. Very sorry to hear this.

They have no idea what they have taken and yet it's everything to us in terms of time, memories, serious cost. Like when someone steals a wallet. Near worthless to the person who tries to get something out of it save for a bill that's mashed in it but to the person it was taken from it is such a waste of money and time to get and pay for a new driver's license, cancel bank cards and get new ones, change all of your online bank card references for the new cards etc. The thief gets nothing and you get worlds of grief. Incredibly selfish of them. I hope the pipes surface such as eBay so they can be found and returned.

What a beautiful set of bagpipes.
Did you ever get them back? I recently had a set of small pipes stolen out of a rental car and was thinking of posting something on this site. Wondering if it helps.
