Stolen Victoria Cross recovered.
Ukrainian-Canadian historian Lubomyr Luciuk had been searching for the Konowal medal since the 1980's and was told by the Canadian War Museum that the VC was misplaced not stolen!. On Friday, 2 April 2004, Iain Stewart who runs the premier Victoria Cross website http://www.victoriacross.org.uk/vcross.htm heard reports that Konowal's VC was for sale by Jeffrey Hoare Auctions of London, Ontario and e-mailed this information to Lubomyr Luciuk. He contacted the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who secured the VC and authenticated it as Konowal's VC.
