Colonel Sir Ernest Edward "Weary" Dunlop was an Australian surgeon who became known for saving the lives of hundreds of fellow inmates in World War II Japanese prisoner-of-war camps. The theft happened last month in Melbourne Australia. It is such a tragedy.
Let’s hope the bastards are caught! All collectors should be vigilant at present if this gear is attempted to be sold.
