At the invitation of Right Worshipful Master Brother Tom Campbell and the Office Bearers and Brethren of Lodge Bannockburn Bruce and Thistle No 312, a deputation from Provincial Grand Lodge landed on Lodge Bannockburn on Friday 13th June 2008 to confer the Entered Apprentice Degree on 1 candidate.

The deputation from Provincial Grand Lodge headed by the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master Brother John McKenzie, accompanied by Brother Andrew A McKinnon, Worshipful Depute Provincial Grand Master, Brother H Graeme Russell, Provincial Grand Secretary and some 13 other elected and honorary members of Provincial Grand Lodge who were warmly received into Lodge Bannockburn by the Right Worshipful Master Brother Campbell and the Brethren assembled.

The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, already a little up tight about the work he and his team were about to carry out, was surprised by the Right Worshipful Master as prior to the Degree being conferred, he was presented to the Brethren assembled and honoured by Lodge Bannockburn Bruce and Thistle No 312 with Honorary membership of the Lodge. The Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master thanked Brother Campbell and the Brethren of Lodge Bannockburn for this honour.

Upon returning to the East Brother McKenzie was presented with the Gavel and assumed the Chair of the Lodge.
