A very special return welcome was made to Brethren travelling from the Province of Hertfordshire recently. W. Bro. Roger Nicholls & W. Bro. Simon Comben both Herts Imperial Yeomanry Lodge, 3192 enjoyed the warmth and fraternal friendship bestowed on them once again in Randalstown 598.


Randalstown 598 and Herts Imperial Yeomanry 3912 have had a fraternal relationship for several years. The Lodge visited them in London back in 2015 and they were due to visit us last year but tragically two of their brethren that were due to make the trip were tragically killed in a car accident the weekend before – V.W. Bro. Peter Messingham and W. Bro. Stan Watts, will be deeply missed by both Lodges.


At the recent installation, W.M  Jonathon McMillan presented an inscribed Maul to Herts Imperial Yeomanry 3912 in memory of these fallen brethren.


Randalstown 598 will be making a return journey to London in early 2018.
