In setting out this history of the lodge, I hope it won’t become just a catalogue of events which have occurred in the lodge over the past 130 years or so! By adding some of my own thoughts and experiences and a story or two, I hope it will be of some interest, not only to Lodge Albert members, but also to anyone else who happens to read it.
I hope it may also convey a little of the spirit and fine sense of brotherhood that does exist in our great fraternity, which doesn’t always receive the best of publicity.
Anyway, it’s my way of saying thanks to the brethren of the Lodge for allowing me the great privilege of being their R.W.M. between 1989 and 1991.
Special thanks to Mrs Joan Rollo for laying all this out on her computer, to PM Syd Rollo and PM Bert Clapperton for all their help in obtaining the Minute Books, and to all the Lodge secretaries for their hard work over the years. Thanks also to David C. Taylor for his contributions, to Roy Myers for his cover, and to Andy Whyte for all his help with the printing.
A final thank you to Doreen, who like every Masters’ wife, put up with a lot over the years - and to think of it - probably still does
