A well-deserved Certificate of Merit was awarded to former Scots Guardsman Dan Spratt in recognition of 42-years’ service as Standard Bearer for Jedburgh branch.

The certificate was presented by Graham Walter, Drill Instructor for the Edinburgh, Lothians and Borders Area of Royal British Legion Scotland.

Graham Walter explained, “As Legion Scotland are the Custodians of Remembrance, it is important we have people like Dan Spratt who are able to carry out the required drill correctly. Dan has been an absolute stalwart all these years.”

In reply, Dan Spratt said, “It has been an honour to have served as Jedburgh Legion Standard Bearer for the past 42 years and I look forward to a few more years yet.”
