When I retired after 44 years of loyal service to the crown (3 wars experienced). I received a two minute phone call thanking me.
The OH completes 15 years service and receives the following:
Dinner at Claridges
An £850 Mont Blanc pen set
An £830 Mont Blanc briefcase
and a £230 Mont Blanc Note book
Yes I know that Subrosa will villify me. However I'm going to nick the fountain pen as my wife's writing is utter shite.
