Duke of Kent visits the Falkland Islands on 30th anniversary of conflict

Falklands meeting with The Duke

Last November, a pilgrimage was organised to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Falklands conflict. A group of veterans and next of kin of those who fell in the war visited the islands. HRH The Duke of Kent accompanied the group as the representative of Her Majesty the Queen, and among the 50 veterans he met at a function were five masons.

They were Michael Winn (Richard Linnecar Lodge, No. 6413, West Yorkshire), Tim Lewis (Wychwood Lodge, No. 2414, Oxfordshire), Andrew Weston (St Vincent’s Lodge, No. 5295, Hampshire), Clive Pattle (The Ancient Lodge of Forfar Kilwinning, No. 90, Scottish Constitution) and Gordon Mather (Dean Waterfield Lodge, No. 8089, Herefordshire).
