Letter signed by Chairman of Directors of Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd, John W. Chester, and addressed to Ken F. Turner regarding his long service with Kodak. The letter discusses the previous award of a 25 year service watch and a 40 year anniversary silver service tray, which was standard issue to long-serving Kodak employees, and mentions that Kodak was now introducing lapel pins for staff in 1980 as a sign of long service so that other staff could see and acknowledge it. They presented Ken with a gold lapel pin.

Ken Turner worked for the company from 1938 to 1981, first in processing and then customer service. Ken's son Neil Turner later had a long career at Kodak Australasia too, based at Coburg.

This object 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.
