Kin­tyre plough­man’s long ser­vice

MR FRAN­CIS McGrath, who has com­pleted 30 years’ ser­vice on the farm of Ranachan (Mrs An­drew’s), has re­cently re­ceived tan­gi­ble recog­ni­tion of his long and mer­i­to­ri­ous ser­vice in the form of the High­land and Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety’s sil­ver medal, bear­ing the in­scrip­tion: ‘30 years’ ser­vice, Fran­cis McGrath, 1917.’ The medal was ac­com­pa­nied by the cer­tifi­cate of the So­ci­ety.

Mr McGrath’s faith­ful record of work over this ex­tended pe­riod was brought to the no­tice of the High­land So­ci­ety through the Kin­tyre Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety.

His many friends will con­grat­u­late him on be­ing the re­cip­i­ent of the H. and A. S. long-ser­vice medal, and will wish him many years of con­tin­ued health and strength to en­joy his well-mer­ited dec­o­ra­tion and to do his ‘bit’ in con­nec­tion with the im­por­tant in­dus­trial oc­cu­pa­tion which it is his lot to fol­low.
