On Monday 18 March 2019, the Provincial Grand Master, Brother James C. Peddie, attended at the Trades House of Glasgow Lodge, No. 1241. On that occasion the Lodge was receiving their Annual Visitation by the Provincial Grand Lodge of Glasgow.
Brother Peddie was delighted to meet the Provincial Grand Master of Nottinghamshire, United Grand Lodge of England, Brother Philip Graham Marshall and the Master of Racliffe Lodge, No. 5313 (E.C.), Brother John Bassford, who were visiting the Brethren of the Trades House Lodge.
In addition to carrying out the Annual Visitation, the Provincial Grand Master presented Brother Hamilton M. G. Purdie, a Past Master of the Lodge and Past Substitute Provincial Grand Master with Honorary Grand Rank. Brother Purdie, who is pictured front right, has been awarded the Honorary Grand Rank of Senior Deacon for his service to Freemasonry.
After the meeting the Provincial Grand Master enjoyed harmony with the members of the Lodge.
Our congratulations are extended to Brother Purdie!
