Stolen Art Watch, Cut and Thrust of Stealing History !!

Sword collection from Russia's imperial past is stolen

Thieves have stolen a rare collection of antique Russian swords.

The thieves struck overnight Saturday or during the day on Sunday, forcing their way into a storeroom in Common Road, Eton Wick, where the swords were kept.

The 25 swords from Russia's imperial past are worth about £100,000.

They belong to Tony Oliver, 75, who runs the History on Wheels museum in Eton Wick. The museum's unique collection of wartime and veteran vehicles is world famous.

Anyone with information that could lead to the recovery of the stolen swords is asked to contact Slough CID on 0845 8 505 505 and ask for PC Marsh, or email
