Last week I travelled to Launceston for work and as in the past I had arranged to visit a Lodge meeting .
On my travels , I was in transit awaiting in the Qantas club in Melbourne- Where I noticed a Gentleman dressed with a suit and two gold pins , The freemasons Square & compass and a musical staff.
My first thought- he was a member of a side order - Freemason Symphony Orchestra.
I eventually approached him and pointed to my pin- Square & Compass with Kangaroo ( I was incognito ), after a rigorous testing ( I believe we are in the same fraternity).
After some discussion, His name in Peter Stokes Lodge Sincerity WA and a Past Grand Master - Grand Lodge WA in Perth , and was in Melbourne for a meeting with other Grand lodge masters including our own Grand Master .
Again , he thought I was a Master or a grand master ? ( It must be my aurora ), I said no, I am just part of a Scottish Lodge !
I hope to see him again at the Grand Installation in July .
