Pegasus Lodge 5637
This lodge is one of the provinces oldest special interest lodges. It was originally formed as a lodge for those with military affiliation, formed by masons with a connection to the Royal Air Force, from nearby RAF Halton, near Wendover.
When they were first consecrated most of the applicants were members of, or associated with the Royal Air Force. Nowadays there are no such restrictions, although they are all proud of their shared heritage, and still have members with an RAF or aviation background.
One of the lodge's most notable Past Masters was Jerry Fray DFC, who was also a member of Daedalus Lodge, one of their sister lodges. Jerry played a key roll in the famous Dambuster's raid in World War 2, and you can find out more about him here:
During the War period of 1939 to 45 practically every member of the lodge was on active service with the Armed forces or local government. Below is a summary compiled in 1947.
