On Thursday 3rd of July 2014, at the Para Districts Masonic Centre, brethren and visitors witnessed WBro. Bill Penley PM, present WBro. Bruce Pitt, OAM, PSGD, with his second 5 year bar to his 50 year Veteran's Jewel for his 60 years of service to Freemasonry.


WBro. Bruce Pitt in his response to the assembled brethren thanked them for this honour but did not think he deserved it as “Freemasonry has given me much, much more than I have given it.”


WBro. Pitt was initiated into Salisbury Lodge No 126 in 1954, was Worshipful Master in 1965 and has held various offices, including for many years,  as Secretary.  He continues serving as Inner Guard today.


WBro. Pitt is also a Foundation Member of Salisbury Mark Lodge No 52.


WBro. Pitt was honoured with a OAM for his services to hockey a few years ago.
