Owzat? 100 not out!
50 years in RAM. . . 100 years on planet earth. . . promotion to Past Grand Master Overseer. . . and a card from the Queen: Cricket-mad Rowly Kirk of No10 Mark and RAM has every right to smile!!
When Andy Fautley and Laurence Keen (both of No 10 Mark and RAM) called round to present cards and greetings to our latest centenarian they found him in very good spirits. Sitting in his sunny conservatory amid family, cards and presents, he was soon opening certificates and letters from Mark Grand Lodge, together with cards from his many masonic friends (and many he did not even know would know him).
But above all these things, he was at great pains to point out that his name is Rowly with a W! "My mother would have told you straight," said Rowly, "Rowland has a W." Having looked through his many cards, it is clear that quite a number of you can expect a letter of complaint from him some time soon!
