now, i'm no jewel detective

I'm reading about the theft of the Irish crown jewels.

the wikipedia article says "it was never solved"

but it also says

  • The jewels were transferred to a new safe
  • Sir Arthur Vicars, the Ulster King of Arms, had it placed in his library.
  • two keys to the safe containing the regalia were both in the custody of Vicars.
  • Vicars was known to get drunk on overnight duty and he once awoke to find the jewels around his neck.


now, I'm no jewel detective:


has anyone looked into this Vicars fella
