On Saturday 1st October the newly consecrated Somerset Military Lodge conducted their first Ceremony, which was also a first. Tony Guthrie the WM carried out a superb ceremony, as did all the officers doing the work, it could be said in a proper military fashion!
The Candidate was an active Marine, Colour Sergeant Martin Walsh, who was also brilliant and was great to be lead around.
A fine bunch of men and officers of the Lodge.
The evening was rounded off with a rousing rendition of the New Initiates song and the living circle was formed, with Tony then taking wine with the newest member of the SML.
A huge thank you to Les Pickersgill for taking these wonderful photos and many more. If anyone would like more of the Photos, please contact the News team or Les directly.
