In 1920, Temple Lodge, No. 33 placed a solid bronze commenorative plaque at the entrance to the Duncan Masonic Temple to commemorate the four members of Temple Lodge, No. 33 who died while serving in the Canadian military in France during the First World War.
We removed this plaque from the exterior of the Duncan Masonic Temple in 2013 after receiving credible information that it might be targeted for theft due to the scrap value of the solid bronze from which it was cast.
We replaced this plaque with a sign at the entrance to the Duncan Masonic Temple commemorating the four members of Temple Lodge who died in Canda's military service during the First World War. This sign was designed by Bro. Paul Philcox (Lt.Col. retd.) and unveiled in a formal public ceremony on 11 November 2013 by W.Bro Mark Anderson (W.M. - 2013-1015) and Duncan Mayor Phil Kent.
On November 11, 2014 Temple Lodge, No.33 placed a second sign at the entrance to the Duncan Masonic Temple to commemorate the members of Temple Lodge, No. 33 who served in Canada's military during the First World War. This sign was unveiled in a public ceremony by W. Bro. Mark Anderson (W.M. - 2013-15), the local Member of Parliament, Jean Crowder, the local M.L.A., Bill Routley and the Mayor of Duncan, Phil Kent.
Both these commemorative signs are displayed below:
