My dear webmaster

Thank you for your timely response and the excellent information contained therein. These details for both my father and godfather have filled gaps in my knowledge of both this time in their lives and their entry to Freemasonry. Tommy was, incidentally, one of my father's closest friends until he passed away and was best man at my parents wedding in 1957. As may be evident, I held both in great affection and still do.

The 'in memoriam' details that you requested are as follows:

Arhibald Henderson Campbell MM passed away on Wednesday 27th September 2000 and was interred at Arrochar churchyard on Friday 29th Septembber 2000.

Thomas McNiven Lindsay MM passed away on Wednesday 11th July 2007 and was interred also at Arrochar churchyard on Tuesday 24 July 2007.

Your accidental erratum with regard to my dad's date of birth made me smile and thanks for that. He was actually born on 25th June 1929, not 1029, as stated, when his birth would, of course, have pre-dated the foundation of the Templars by some 90 years!

Additional information on my dad is that he was admitted to the degrees of Mark and and Excellent Master in the Royal Arch Chapter on 1st March 1962.

Finally some info on me! I was elevated to the degree of Fellow Craft last night and my Master Mason ceremony is scheduled for the 26th of this month. Should any brethren from 1015 wish to journey to the East(admittedly quite a distance!)to visit 'the oldest lodge in the World', then I know that they would be afforded the most cordial welcome at St John's Kilwinning, Haddington, the unfortunately numbered '57'. All of the history surrounding this would be proudly revealed on the evening, I'm sure. We tyle at 7.15, incidentally.

Thanks again.

Hi Bro. David, welcome to our website, and thanks for contacting us.

I have researched our records and I have found your Father, Bro. Archibald Henderson CAMPBELL, MM, and your Godfather Bro. Thomas McNiven LINDSAY MM.

Your Father was born on Wednesday the 25th June 1929, he was a Joiner to trade, and lived at Rhudle, Arrochar. He was Initiated on Wednesday 20th January 1960; he was Passed on Wednesday 3rd February 1960; Raised on 17th February 1960 and Advanced on 16th November 1960.

Your Godfather, Bro. Lindsay, was born on Wednesday 31st July 1929, he was a Chainman, sadly I could not find his address. He was Initiated on Friday 6th April 1951; Passed on Friday 27th April 1951; Raised on Wednesday 3rd October 1951 and Advanced on Wednesday 17th October 1951.

I have not been able to find any record of any Offices, both your Father and your Godfather, may have held in the Lodge.

I do not have any information on their Raising the the Grand Lodge Above, and would be obliged if you have that information to hand, I could update our Website "In Memoriam" page. If you do visit our "In Memoriam" page, please have your volume turned up on your computer.

I hope this has been of use to you?

Just dropping by as both my father Archibald Campbell MM and my Godfather Thomas Lindsay MM were members of St Modan. I'm sure that my grandfather Thomas Campbell was also a longstanding member

I look forward to visiting you in person once I have passed my third degree, as I have heard much about the lodge throughout my lifetime. Perhaps tales of St Modan even contributed to my decision to become a Mason at last at the grand old age of 52.

Yours fraternally

Bro. David Campbell
