Around this time of the year, a delegation from the District Grand Lodge of the Far East (Scottish Constitution) led by the District Grand Master comes to Korea to perform the installation ceremony of the 3 Scottish lodges on the peninsula.
Lodge Pusan #1675 had their installation on a Wednesday and my friend Doc Marty was installed as master. After the installation they enjoyed a nice banquet.
On Thursday, the delegation flew back to Seoul and enjoyed some leisure time with the Brethren of Han Yang.
On Friday, we at Lodge Han Yang #1048 held our installation and had a great turnout even though it was a cold winter’s day.
Bro Dennis was installed as Master, Bro Derek as Senior Warden and myself as Junior Warden.
Later that evening, we had a great time at the banquet.
We awaited the arrival of the head table.
And had a presentation of the haggis.
There was also a presentation of Bro Dennis’ family.
After the meal, all the toasts, speeches and presentations were made.
We were lucky enough to have a band this year.
We also had a dance.
After which, we finished up with a lovely nitecap in the hospitality suite.
The next day, we went down to Pyeongtaek for the installation of Lodge Harry S. Truman #1727. Bro Rich was installed as master.
