Lodge

Brother Marine Arthur Williams

On Saturday 16th January our very own “Star” of Channel 4 TV, Brother Marine Arthur Williams will be giving a presentation on his life story at Installed Masters Lodge No 6889 at Kings Heath.

Here is a young man who having won the Kings Badge as the best recruit during his Royal Marines Commando Course then suffered a life changing accident.

However with drive, tenacity and determination he has, since being paralysed from the waist down, taken his Driving Test, gained a Private Pilot’s Licence, and become a well featured Presenter on various Channel 4 Programmes, commencing with the Para-Olympics of 2012 and then programmes on the Mosquito aircraft, the D Day Landings and Commemorations, the Re-Burial of Richard 111 and his own series of “Flying to the Ends of the Earth.” A second series is about to commence filming.

A very busy young man, who has even found the time to recently get married.

If you are not a Member of Installed Masters but are an Installed or Past Master then contact our Information Officer, Ian Fothergill who will be delighted to “Book You In.”
