Letter from then Chairman of Directors Mr John Chester to Mr Brian Phillipson, sent with the issue of Brian's 25 years long service badge. The company had just recently introduced brooches for women and lapel pins for men, for 25, 40 and 50 years of service, so that other staff could see who had achieved these periods of service.

Brian Phillipson worked with Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd for 36 years from 1955 to 1990. Brian worked in paper coating at Abbotsford, then in stores, after which he spent 22 years developing safe lighting technology for use in the darkened environment required for photograpic product manufacture and finishing at the Coburg factory.

This document was donated as part of the Kodak Oral History Project. It complements the Kodak Heritage Collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.
