hi everybody

I really hoped to join the discussions here on CF for more funny matters...

today while we were on our way to Locarno Switzerland for a Birkin Tree gig our car has been robbed. We were in Lainate (Mi) close by the McDonald's in Via Pirelli.
the following instruments have been stolen:
1 blackwood D/C fully keyed combo flute set made by Mike Grinter. Flute is quite easily recognisable as the keys are very tarnished. Typical Grinter case has signs of previous repairs, it's held together with adhesive tape atm. my beloved flute for the last 12 yrs or so.
1 a 5 key G blackwood flute made by Gilles Lehart. keys are nickel silver and rings are copper.
1 boxwood low G whistle made by Jon Swayne
1 blackwood D whistle made by Bleazey
1 ebony and brass full set made by Charles Roberts, chanter by Cillian O'Brien in ebony brass and artificial Ivory. one C key.
1 Killarney tin whistle
1 fretted keyboard fiddle made by Bodo Vosshenrich
1 Irish harp made by Camac, mod. Aziliz
