Archie Peat Great photo of first class gentlemen whom I remember well . However I have to correct you on the first man to reach 50 years service in L599 . I have a testimonial from the Lodge given to my Great Grandfather Archie Peat commemorating 50 years service in 1944
Incidentally if the Lodge would like that certificate for their records I would be happy to return it.
The Blantyre Project Duncan Peat brilliant to see that. A nice piece of history and certainly that should be recognised. It would be shame if the lodge have recorded the longest service being in 1978, rather than this cert. You definitely should take that up with them. 😉
David Baillie Yes my papa was grand master of the lodge in the 1974 or 75 his name was Andrew Baillie
