On Friday 19th October 2018 the WM & Brethren of Liscard Lodge 2657 were delighted to welcome back for a visit WBro Allan Russell. Allan is a Past Master of the Lodge having been installed in April 1990 but these days is an Honorary Member as he now lives in Melbourne, Australia.
This was his first visit to ‘the old Country’ & the Lodge for 25 years. Allan is now a Past Master of Lodge of Devotion 723 having recently installed his successor at Gipps Street Masonic Hall, Abbotsford, Melbourne.
On the night of his visit, as the Inner Guard was unable to attend Allan gladly stood in for him and witnessed an interesting and unusual presentation of a Grand Lodge Certificate by WBro Danny Cooper PProvJGD.
Allan is no stranger to the role of Inner Guard in Liscard Lodge and was nicknamed “Knocker Russell” by the Brethren of Liscard when he first took on the role more years ago than he cares to remember.
It was delight to welcome him and he leaves these shores with our warm fraternal & brotherly regards – “here’s to the next time Allan”.
