Following solid EA knocks on the door of the Lodge, the answer to the Inner Guard's question of ‘Whom have you there?’ came from Tyler ‘W. Bro George A. Whiting and Brethren of the Lodge, bringing with them the new Banner of the Lodge for Dedication’.
The Banner party; W. Bro. George Whiting, ADC; Bro. A. Ferris, SW; Bro. R. Bennett, JW and the DC, W. Bro Terry Hawke were then admitted to the Lodge. The Dedication Ceremony was conducted by the then Provincial Grand Master, W. Bro Alan D. Chun MBE with an Explanation of the Origins of the Banner being delivered by W. Bro George Whiting.
The Patriarchal Benediction was given by W. Bro the Reverend P.E.J. McManus PDepGChap after he had addressed the Brethren on the Banner and its intentions.
Our Visiting Grand Lodge Officer, the late W. Bro V.P. Cooper PGStB added his Congratulations on behalf of the Grand and the Provincial Grand Masters. The Banner hangs on permanent display in the King's Court Temple.
