Brother Jim Martin P.M.


On St John's Night (27th December 2017) the brethren marked the passing of Brother Jim Martin P.M. 
to the Grand Lodge above, with a minute's silence. Brethren paid tribute to Jim, who was 
an outstanding ambassador for No. 50 and for freemasonry in general, having visited lodges 
all over the world. P.M. Craig Campbell spoke of Jim's significant contribution to the the Lodge, 
and he gave thanks for the encouragement that Jim gave to both him and his brother, 
P.M. Iain Campbell, in the development of their masonic careers. In addition to being 
a great freemason, Jim was a popular member of the Inveraray community, he will be sadly missed,
 and our thoughts go to his wife Sue and his family at this sad time.
