When Customer Service Partner Bruce Hamilton from the Tenterden branch hangs up his apron he transforms into Private Hamilton of the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment Third Battalion (3PWRR).
In fact Bruce has just returned to his job at Waitrose after a years’ millitary services in Afghanistan where he toured with the army as a combat infantry man.
“It’s a once in a lifetime experience”, he said. “Of course, it has its highs and lows. You see good things and then some horrific things, but I definetly feel better for having done it”.
Tenterden is very supportive of Bruce’s work with the army, especially the management, who authorised his leave of absence for the tour of Afghanistan.
