This is something I feel will be of interest to many of our members and readers, because of the Military connection and history involved.
It’ is of course last years launch of Sussex Medal Services by our esteemed member and friend Jon Bartholomew, Hastings Town Crier and former Sergeant in the Corps of Royal Military Police, who motto is “By example shall we lead”, which is very fitting for a Town Crier, especially one who is able to lead, playing the bag-pipes!
“Always a pleasure to be handed a task and transform it into a keep sake
for future generations”
…says the founder and owner of Sussex Medal Services, Jon Bartholomew.
A quick look at Jon’s Facebook page will show you just some of the impressive and interesting examples of the fine work he is doing.
Please take a moment to visit his Sussex Medal Services Facebook Page and take a look for yourself.
It’s a wonderful “little cottage industry” as Jon would put it, being both a hobby and a small venture, but more than that, it’s also important in keeping history and memories alive and giving a lot of joy to the people, who it means so much to. From the feedback he’s received and the pictures, he is following through on his motto and doing a grand job.
Well done Jon! We wish you all the best.
A final word from Jon “Thanks to all my Facebook friends and those beyond for supporting this venture”
