Veteran of the Year Award at Armed Forces Day 2011

Armed Forces Day took place in Edinburgh on 25th June 2011. The event raises awareness of the contribution made to the U.K. by those who currently and formerly served in its armed forces, and also gives an opportunity for the public to show its support for the men and women of the Armed Forces community. As part of the event, an award was made for Veteran of the Year. The recipient in 2011 was Mr. Ron Mason. The award, a crystal plaque, was supplied and engraved by Uppermost.
