Clacton: Pensioner Robbed Of Medals
A pensioner has been assaulted and had his war medal stolen in Clacton.
The 79-year-old was walking along The Pier shortly before 10:30am Sunday, September 15 when his path was blocked by a man who began frantically waving his arms.
The elderly man was then pushed aside and had his General Service Canal Zone medal stolen from his jacket.
Investigating Officer, Pc Jamie Solomons, said: "We’re naturally appealing for anyone who can recall seeing this interaction between the two men on the Pier last month, but equally importantly anyone who has seen this medal or been offered it in unusual circumstances.”
The medal is described as gold, approximately 3cms in diameter, has the Queen’s head on one side and has a green and purple ribbon attached to it. It was issued for service between 1951-1955.
