Robert Gardner KOM, PGP2004
Detail on request
Another Leyland Lodge member who is 80+ years young, and recently passed 50 blissful years of marriage to his own blushing Bride, Margaret.
Bro Bob was initiated into the Elizabethan Lodge in the former Preston Province and was just a humble Kangaroo, which is all he aspired to for so many years since his initiation on a disputed date long ago. Bro Bob believes it was sometime in the 1960's, but Grand Lodge think 1971 and his replacement parchment is from that date.
Bro Bob was raised to Roll Of Honour by Bro Barry Skelhorn in a packed Lodge Room. Now sadly,at 85+ years he has been forced to move to a Carehome having fallen ill in March 2016.
Bro Bob has served every top office since becoming the LAST ever CP in the former Preston Province which was merged with West Lancs Province the following year. Bob missed out on Honorary Membership after a disgraceful suspension at the hands of errent Brother of another Province. But Leyland Lodge presented him with his own Chain and Pendant for his Services to Buffaloism. (Jokingly refered to as Bearer of the Bog Chain)
