Centenary Reception

The next image is of a certificate of exemption from paying annual dues. It was given to Bro Lamond Watson as he was serving in The Royal Garrison Artillery during the First World War.

One of many of our Brethren who served our country. Bro Watson thankfully came home again. So many others did not.

The original card is little bigger than credit card size when folded closed. You will see from the date that it was issued in 1916. A terrific item of memorabilia. And for an item close to 100 years old, it is still in remarkable condition.

Our grateful thanks to Bro Lamond Taylor for allowing us to take an image of the card.

The next two images are of the 50th Anniversary Dinner programme. Thanks to Bro John Strachan P.M. for unearthing this programme , the Consecration programme and the 75th Anniversary booklet from his personal archives.

This next image is probably the last surviving copy of our 75th Anniversary booklet - at least it's the last one Webmaster knows about! Thanks once again to Bro John Strachan P.M. for blowing the dust from his archives.

 

. . . . and from the inside page of the 75th Anniversary booklet, a message from the then RWM Bro J Douglas Allan - now sadly and suddenly gone to the Grand Lodge above. His message stands the test of the years and the last paragraph is as relevant today as it was when first written in November 1986.

 

. . . . . . to be continued.

This page will grow as more "goodies" come to light which we can share for the pleasure of all who visit our website.
