Some crafty bugger nicked the big plaque off the front galley of Concorde during disembarkation. I wouldn't mind but how do you get this large plaque past everyone - not to mention it needs a screwdriver to get it off.

Well here is where honesty pays....
I flew on Concorde on one of the special last flights. Dressed fine (tux).
Everyone was lifting everything. For reasons due to my better than average dress code, a representative of BA drove me to my car after we landed. I commented on the nerve of people to lift safety cards and other items. I noted that much of the material was not labelled "Concorde" and looked like first class wear. BA told me they were concerned on making sure enough cards were remaining with spares for the remaining legs back to London. I said if I was to lift something it would have been the headphones.
A week later a package arrived from BA. Inside a very nice note commenting on our discussion on Concorde materials. The staff remembered my discussion on headphones and wanted to send me a gift. Inside the package....were a pair of concorde headphones.
there is economy class, business class, first class...then Concorde..pure class

GulfstreamGuy, one Hail Mary and a glass of champagne
Cool Ba97, you behaved like a real gentleman - Tux and a good taste in Concorde souvenirs You really deserved the headphones!
Acho, you could recommend the people you know, that they tries a flight on an old ex-Russian plane somewhere in Africa. Some of the interior (and more vital parts of the plane perhaps) might not be very well fixed to the fuselage (and wings)
Thanks also to the rest of you too
It seems that people take things, that can be easily removed. Not very many people use tools like a screwdriver to get more rare souvenirs from the plane.
More replies will be appreciated, thanks in advance.

When she was an f/a, my wife had a passenger get past her carrying the aircraft megaphone under his overcoat. A megaphone!
A docent at the USAF museum at Dayton said that a scoutmaster was stopped, carrying a hatch he'd removed from a display airplane. His scout troop saw him do it. Scratch "honest" from the list of scout virtues.
