On 1 July Court Assistant Tom Hempenstall was a VIP guest at the Royal Marines HQ at Lympstone in Devon.

Tom-and-Marines

He was there to present the Stationers' Company Sword to Brigadier G M Salzano MBE, Commandant of the Commando Training Centre. His visit coincided with the Passing Out Parade of The King's Squad which he was invited to witness.

 

Although he was not related to any of the young cadets being awarded their green berets Tom tells me that he felt a great sense of pride in their achievements and thankful that our forebears in the Stationers’ Company had the good sense to choose the Royal Marines as the part of the armed services that we should support.

 

Well done Tom!
