King’s Friends’ WBro Gerald Emerton takes his Coaches out for a Spin

Shrewsbury Steam Rally attracted thousands over the August Bank Holiday weekend to see and smell transport of a bygone era. Amongst the many exhibitors was WBro Gerald, a Member of Kings Friends Lodge no 293 who has a collection of vintage coaches. Gerald, his son and grandson exhibited three well turned out vehicles, a 1933 Leyland Cub, a 1949 Crossley SD 42/7 and a 1950 Bedford OB all were driven with great pride into the Main Arena for everyone to see. Gerald recently celebrated his 50th year in Freemasonry at King’s Friends’ Lodge and is looking forward to the coming season particularly the November meeting when the Lodge will welcome a very special visitor!
