An amazing good deed at Christmas ....

by Banana Crumble | Dec 28, 2019

A man who lost a gold ring while working in a field in the 1950s has been reunited with it 61 years on.

Roy Beddows lost the nine-carat gold ring – engraved with his initials – while working on a farm in West Felton, Oswestry, Shropshire, when he was 17.

It was found by metal detectorist Robin Kynaston, who traced Mr Beddows after the landowner realised it may belong to an ex-employee of her late father.

Mr Kynaston said it was “amazing” to return the ring to its rightful owner.

He has now struck up a friendship with Mr Beddows, 79, and the pair realised they knew people in common.

“I make a point of always returning everything I find to the landowner or at least offering it to them, good or scrap,” said Mr Kynaston, who took up metal detecting three years ago.

“But this was the first gold I’d ever found. It was a little bit of a difficult thing to pass it back, but I did pass it back and look what’s come out of it – something amazing.”
