Certificate of Service

This image shows page 2 of a Certificate of Service. The certificate was issued to John Cameron Gordon of the Royal Signals, enlisted on the 21st July 1936. Certificates of service, issued to every British soldier, held details such as army number, rank, record of service, certificates of transfers and discharge, record of education and previous service.

Page 2 of the certificate shows an assessment of John Cameron Gordon's conduct and character on leaving the Royal Signals. His military conduct is stated as being exemplary and the testimonial shows him to have been a prisoner of war in the Far East. At the bottom of the page the soldier's signature reflects his transfer to the army reserve on the 7th February 1946.

After the war years, John Gordon went on to become the proprietor of the music shop, 'The Record Rendezvous', located at Church Street, Inverness.
