Absolutely disgusting - and they tell us they have no funds for more FLO's etc - do they live in the real world :g45:

Not reporting the loss to the Police until 5 years after they knew it went missing (or was stolen) How the hell can this be BM policy?

Not a happy bunny at all after reading this - we have also had club members who have had treasure items go missing - makes you wonder doesn't it :g43:

It says it was reported to the police in 2011 ... it doesnt say when it went missing...
say you have a museum with 10 million items under your care ... how do you guard against items going missing... these things happen... luckily very rarely.
Ironically our hobby totally depends on people losing stuff, so the fact that the museum has had a loss, shouldnt be too much of a surprise to us.

Stuff gets nicked all the time ... a bottle of jack daniels from Asda ... A ring from the BM ... £200m from lloyds Bank ... I am totally failing to see any differences.

Do they have insurance cover I wonder?

Surely something of that value would be locked in a safe and an audit done every year?

Just imagine if you worked at a top London jewellers and went up to the boss and said you had lost a ring worth £750,000? I do not think you would still have a job at the end of it :g45:

It is impossible to just loose something of that value - unless of course you are the BM :g64:

VG question ... I dont see why not... the act of writing an item off, would I guess be the catalyst for making a claim.. but I'm no expert.

Should the BM be trusted anymore with treasure items? As they have surely proved now that they cant be :g43:

It probably works just like that ... but every time the safe is opened there is a risk that it will go missing ... and as you say the audit is probably done every year. Many systems operate on trust ... so in the intervening 12 months some scum bag got their hands on it. hey ho as we say in Banking.
