A belated reply I'm afraid, but the report of this nasty theft prompted me to ensure that I keep my list of any serial numbers or maker's marks up to date. I also photgraph my instruments in as much detail as possible so that I have a visual record of them. This will not prevent theft, of course, but it may make recover more possible and prosecution (hopefully) more viable.
