A retired Gurkha soldier has been punched and robbed of his Rolex watch by two thugs.
The 53-year-old was set upon on his way to work at the Royal British Legion Village in Aylesford.
He suffered a cut and bump to his head before his silver and blue Rolex watch, which has a blue face, was stolen.
The man was attacked on Monday in East Park Road near Preston Hall Hospital at 4.25pm.
PC Ben Clatworthy, from Kent Police, said: "This sort of attack is the last thing that should happen to someone who has served their country."
The offenders are both described as white men, aged 15 to 25. One is stocky, 5ft 6in and wearing dark clothing and a hooded jumper.
The other is slim, 5ft 8in and was wearing a grey hooded jumper and dark tracksuit bottoms.
