He will be installed by our Provincial Grand Recorder Distinguished Companion Martyn Greene. Also on that evening a number of members of our Province will be advanced to the Second Grade of the Order. It is assured to be a friendly and successful evening.


On Friday 5 July, Inchcolm Conclave ‘admitted’ two new Princes into the Order. Brothers Grant Forbes and Kevin Thompson were the ‘stars’ of the evening. Several Conclave Officers were missing but thanks to the friendship within the Order, their places were soon filled by willing volunteers. As Supreme Ruler Wy Bro Ian Barbour could not be there (Get well soon Ian) his place was taken by the Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler, R Wy Bro Morgan McDonald who proved an adequate replacement. Also on that evening Wy Bro W. Stewart Jeffray was elected as the Supreme Ruler Elect. Congratulations to Kevin, Grant and Stewart, and we look forward to seeing your progress in the Conclave.

New Supreme Ruler for Roman Brig Conclave 465

On Saturday 13th April Wy Bro Eric Robert Charles Watson was Installed as Supreme Ruler of Roman Brig Conclave by Wy Bro John Cunningham PGStB in ‘Foxy’s’ own inimitable way. Eric is a very experienced Freemason and has been installed into many ‘Chairs’ in various Orders so we look forward to seeing Roman Brig hopefully start the road to recovery and improvement. This is no way an indictment on Bro John who has actually filled the chair for the last 5 years. The Harmony Board after the Ceremony was very enjoyable and it was great to welcome visitors from West Scotland and Northumberland.

We now wish Wy Bro Eric Watson and his Conclave all the very best for the ensuing year ahead.
