Immediate Past President
Name: Bro Stewart Duff (PM) (Pepe)
Year President: 2022
Mother Lodge: Pollockshaws Royal Arch Lodge No. 153
Masonic Office: Depute Master
Freemason since: 1994
Widows Sons member since: 2018
Motorbike(s) owned: I tend to change bikes a lot, right now I ride a Harley Davidson Street Glide Special, Harley Davidson Pan America 1250S, Harley Davidson Breakout (customised) and also a Norton Commando 961 California.
3 Things I enjoy most about being a member of The Widows Sons:
- Genuine Friendships.
- Riding together with all my brothers.
- Supporting various charities.
Favourite Widows Sons trip: There are so many !!! The Glencoe weekend was great. It was the first event after lockdown with all the brethren from West, East and North Chapters riding to Glencoe. It was good to get out on the bikes in a group again and out for a few beers ( pub was open) then getting around the fire at the campsite for stories and even some live music.
Most notable experience of The Widows Sons: The day we had an official Bike Blessing at Glasgow Cathedral followed by unveiling the Willie Mac Memorial Bench at Marcus Humphrey House. As President at the time it was a huge honour to lead these very emotional events , the point when the Minister placed the Cut of our lost Brother Phillip Buchan on the alter is a moment that will live with me forever.
What I would say to any prospective member thinking of joining The Widows Sons: Come and meet us , join us on a ride out , if you enjoy it join us , if you don’t that’s ok, but I’m sure you will enjoy the brotherhood , banter , support and fun.
My proudest experienced/achievement as the chapter President: Again, there are so many, I’ve mentioned a couple above so I’ll add representing WSS when we were in France and doing a wee speech to nearly a dozen international WS Presidents and their Chapter’s. And being our President in 2022 when the West donated over £9,000 to charitable causes.
