    On his retirement day

    Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentence?

    On his retirement day, David got a gold watch from his company as a token of appreciation.

    Re: On his retirement day

    Consider using "received" instead of "got" in that sentence.

    Re: On his retirement day

    I'd probably remove "day". Admittedly, that takes away the idea that he received the watch on the same day he retired, but it retains the idea that the watch was his retirement present from his company.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
