Installation meeting 23rd February 2010.
The Provincial Grand Master attended the Installation meeting of Science Royal Ark Mariners No.128 at Wincanton on the 22nd February when WBro Tony Wilcox installed Brother Kelley as the new Worshipful Commander. The PGM remarked that the exceedingly good ceremony had been enhanced by superb floor work by all the Officers who took part. The PGM also thanked WBro Wilcox for his 2 years as Commander of the Lodge during which the Lodge had gone from strength to strength under his guidance and leadership. There were many visitors from Wiltshire at the meeting who were enjoying the fellowship of the Degree and were contributing to the wonderful atmosphere which prevailed throughout the evening. WBro Ian Strickland was also congratulated for delivering, in a most spectacular fashion, the ancient RAM charge after the Provincial Grand Master had given the Address to the new Commander.

How the Lodge got its name.
Herbert Leonard Fuller was a surgeon, PGM of Somerset from 1956 to 1967. The Lodge was consecrated at Wincanton on 30th September 1968 by his successor, R.W.Bro Harry Catford. Set up to represent the Degree in the East of the Province, the Lodge has been moored to the Lodge of Science MMM No 128 ever since that date and has been widely supported – particularly from the Mark brethren from the William de Irwin Lodge MMM No 162 in Yeovil.
The Founding brethren were predominantly from the Bath TI Lodge RAM (8) and Fidelity and Unanimity Lodge RAM No 348 (4), although the first Commander (J.W. Bartlet) was from the Edward the Martyr Lodge RAM No 1095 in Shaftsbury, Dorset and with which the Lodge has continued to have a close association.
