Patrick made an unsolicited approach to the Company having heard of our Apprentice Scheme from George Bignold, our very first apprentice, who was Patrick’s platoon commander in the CCF at Kent University. He was inroled in June 2013 and his indentures signed by Past Master Stephen Parsons as his Apprentice Master. He was a very active apprentice and was granted his Freedom in November 2017. He remains an active Young Member and has joined the Apprentice Management Group. In his working life Patrick is an Underwriting Assistant on war, terrorism and political risks at Lloyds and a Special Constable in the Metropolitan Police.
