Bro Crawford Kirkpatrick celebrated 50 years in No XII at our meeting on Tuesday 6th December 2016.  A regular at our meetings (and those of all the other Lodges in the Province and lodges beyond), Bro Crawford is one of the Province’s best known Masons.  It so happened that he received is 50 Year Diploma exactly 50 years to the day from his Initiation.  Bro Crawford’s Father, Bro Alexander A Kirkpatrick, served as Lodge Secretary between 1959 and 1965 years and was RW Master in 1968-70.  Bro Derek Kirkpatrick, Bro Crawford’s son, was RW Master of No XII between 1999 and 2001 and is proud to wear his grandfather’s Past Master’s jewel. The Kirkpatrick family connection with No XII began in 1911 when Bro Crawford’s Grandfather, Bro William Crawford Kirkpatrick (strange similarity there), joined the Lodge on 14th December.

Bro Derek lives in the south of England, his work having taken him there, so he does not get to our meetings as often as he would like, but he came up specially to see his father get his diploma.  All in all it was a very happy addition to our Annual Divine Service meeting.
