A third man has been jailed for attacking a soldier in Nottingham.
22-year-old Daniel Moore of Lathkill Close, Bulwell has been jailed for three and nine months for his part in an attack on the 19-year-old man in Nottingham.
The victim was punched to the ground and then repeatedly kicked to the head by the three men as his fiancée attempted to shield him from the blows in June.
He suffered a broken jaw and injuries to his eye and has since made a full recovery.
Two other men, Aaron Winfield, 19, of Broxtowe Lane, Broxtowe, and Luke Stone, 21, of Cheviot Drive, Bulwell, have already been jailed in connection with the attack.
Winfield was sentenced to four years and Stone was jailed for four-and-a-half years.

'No Respect For Human Life'
DC Ian Holmes led the inquiry, he said:
"The victim had been out for dinner with his fiancée when he was targeted by these individuals.
"The three cowardly men ganged up on him for no reason and the attack was entirely unprovoked - they had no respect for human life or that they could have caused catastrophic damage.
"His injuries were so severe that it was feared he may lose his sight, ending his career in the Army.
"Luckily he has made a full recovery and has returned to his regiment.
"Three dangerous individuals are now behind bars, where they will be unable to hurt anyone else."
