History buff and medieval re-enactor Michael St Omer of Hadlow, England is devastated by the recent theft of swords, archery gear and other equipment from his parents' garage. "I can replace the weapons but they were the first ones I ever had and they meant a lot to me," he said.
St Omer believes the weapons were taken by a gang of young people and fears that they will injure themselves. Taken in the robbery were a federal officer cavalry sword from the American Civil War, which was the only item recovered, two bows and arrows, a Norman cavalry sword, and spears. St Omer has appeared in such films as Robin Hood and Jack the Giant Slayer.
