An idea was conceived during 2016 regarding the 2017 Installation of Bro. Robert McDonald SW as Worshipful Master of Salisbury Mark Lodge No.52.   The Lodge has seven serving Grand Mark Lodge Officers, so with a little assistance could nearly conduct its own Installation.   VWBro. Andrew Wilson DGDC was approached who agreed to the idea. It was noted that this was possibly a first with so many members of the Installing Team belonging to one Mark Lodge.
