World War One cane returned to Bury owner

Have your say

A World War One walking cane has been returned to its owner three weeks after it was lost in Bury St Edmunds.

John Bullen lost it between Petrus Wine Bar and his home in College Street, as we reported on January 23. It had been presented in 1914 to John’s uncle who was later killed.

It was found at the United Reformed Church in Whiting Street.

John, who put up posters across the town centre, said: “I had almost given up hope and I was so glad it was found.”
