Chapter Marine was honoured with the presence of the 3rd Principal of Provincial Grand Chapter E.Comp. Neil Hurcum.
We also were honoured with our past MEGS E.Comp. D. John Bennett who stood in as Joshua for the evening.
E.Comp. Andy Wade proposed that we Exalt Bro Wayne Kelly of Birnbeck Lodge into Chapter Marine and E.Comp. Martin Slocombe proposed on behalf of E.Comp. Mike Barfoot-Franks that we also Exalt Bro Timothy O’Neil of Lodge Marine into Chapter Marine.
Both propositions were carried unanimously.
Bro Wayne Kelly was then Exalted into Chapter Marine by our Principals ably assisted by their Officers.
The Address after Exaltation was given by E.Comp. Neil Hurcum, the signs were explained by E.Comp. Andy Wade and the Mystical Lecture was given by E.Comps. Richard Reeve, Martin Slocombe and Marshall Westley.
At the Festive Board we had an ‘Italian Themed Night ‘ which was thoroughly enjoyed by all, finishing with Chapter Marine’s unique custom of everyone individually standing and toasting their Mother Chapter.
We will be Exalting Bro Timothy O’Neill at our next Convocation on the 10th October 2019.
