Default The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medal presented

Dear Forum,

I was presented with my Platinum Jubilee medal last Monday 14th March previously they had just been collected from the office.

This time presented by the Governor of the Gaol with photo taken in front of portrait of HM The Queen and HMPPS Flag.

My wife also was presented at the same time so very nice occasion.

Had miniatures ,tunics and drop down jacket patches tailored prior to presentation will be dropping of full size to be added shortly. Other items in image red badge is Butler Trust award HMPPS presented to me by HRH Princess Anne,Veterans Badge and HMP Stafford Hidden Heroes badge. Representing 33 years HMPPS and 3 years Army 4th/7th RDG.
Regards
Stephen

Great stuff Stephen!

Still waiting for ours at the 'Granite Palace'. According to our highly efficient Business Hub, our medals are simultaneously 'ordered and waiting to be delivered from Area' and also 'sitting in the No.1's safe awaiting issue'.

We often remark that the normal laws of space, time and physics cease to exist once we cross the cattle grid to work!

Congratulations Sir!

Best wishes and stay safe, Paul.

Paul,
ours arrived over a month ago I bet yours are in the same place ours were under the governor’s desk.

I believe they all went out to area Offices at the same time.

Regards
Stephen

You're probably right mate. I'm just off nights, so will see what happens next week.

Apparently, the nearest establishment to us made a big thing with their presentations a few weeks ago, with buffets, families, photos, etc to accommodate all Divs and shifts. Our current No.1 came from there, so maybe he has plans...!?

Cheers, Paul.

By pure coincidence, I went into work today to the usual onslaught of emails following a week away, and one of them confirms that ours will be presented at a parade on May 10th.
