Triumphant Return for the Provincial Grand Officers Club

On 11th July 2023, the Provincial Grand Officers’ Club was revived by Assistant Provincial Grand Master Gary Brodie, assisted by Paul Williams.

The main event of the evening was a talk by guest speaker Tug Hartley, who was awarded the George Medal for gallantry whilst serving with the 3rd Battalion, Parachute Regiment of the British Army.
Tug described the Kajaki Dam Incident on 6th September 2006 where several anti-personnel mines left over from the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan were detonated costing the life of one soldier and seven others sustaining serious injuries.

It was a very frank and moving account of what it was like to be in the situation and the subsequent consequences for Tug personally. Everyone present found it to be a fascinating insight into the realities of a war.

The PGO Club is open to all past and present Provincial Grand Officers, of and in Buckinghamshire. It meets in July at Slough and January in Bletchley. There will be a subject of interest at each meeting that you won’t normally get to see.
