Can you help reunite this military dog tag with its rightful owner?

Natalie Newman’s five-year-old son discovered the red dog tag in a shopping trolley at Sainsbury’s, Thetford, on Sunday.

It wasn’t until Monday she had realised that he had picked it up.

An engraving on the tag says: “With love from dad. US Air Force Kuwait 2018.”

Mrs Newman said she knows the value of such items as her father was in the forces.

“I don’t know if this person is still deployed or back home and having a keepsake, God forbid anything happens, it is something to keep the memory of them.”

Mrs Newman, who said she went shopping between 11am and 1pm, has put up a post on social media in the hope of finding the owner.

If you know who the dog tag may belong to email reporter Rebecca Murphy on rebecca.murphy@archant.co.uk and she can put you in touch with Mrs Newman.
