POLICE are appealing for members of the public to keep an eye out for a mantle clock stolen during a burglary in Clacton.
A house in Dudley Road was broken in to between September 20 and October 4 after a rear door was forced.
The clock was among various items stolen. It has a plaque inscribed with the name "Edward Thurlow” and was from the 5th Regiment Suffolk battalion.
Royal commemorative cups, mugs and plates, and a Freeview box were also stolen.
The clock is said to be of great sentimental value.
Anyone with information should call Det Con Emma Beynon at Clacton CID or Crimestoppers.
