Post­hu­mous awards re­ceived at Mid­land

Shooting Times & Country Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

Our re­cent re­port on the Na­tional Game­keep­ers’ Or­gan­i­sa­tion Long Ser­vice Awards failed to men­tion that sev­eral post­hu­mous pre­sen­ta­tions were also made at the Mid­land Game Fair.

One was made to Frank Jenk­ins, whose legacy in­cludes the epony­mous memo­rial tro­phy won this year by Jack De­pledge (News, 27 Septem­ber), which was col­lected by Frank’s son Martin, also a game­keeper. An­other was made to Stephen Vale, who had worked at the Corn­bury Park es­tate in Ox­ford­shire and the Eling es­tate in Berk­shire. Mem­bers of the Vale fam­ily were pre­sented with a du­pli­cate medal and a cer­tifi­cate.

Ear­lier in 2017, Wil­liam Webb re­ceived a Long Ser­vice Award in recog­ni­tion of 50 years of em­ploy­ment at the Broad­lands es­tate in Hamp­shire.
