Since its inauguration the Commandery has worked to promote the Order in the East of Scotland. The East of Scotland Commandery was consecrated at the order’s annual investiture on 18th May 2013 in Colinton, Edinburgh, when Chev R Peter Rae was invested as its Commander.


In 2012 the commandery established an award for voluntary service in the community, called the St Lazarus Volunteer in the Community award. The purpose of the award was to recognise an individual who had made a significant contribution to their community.


So often such efforts, particularly by younger people, go unacknowledged. The first recipient was Cadet Lance Corporal Judd Clark of the Glenrothes detatchment of the Black Watch Battalion ACF who over the last three years had organised a variety of events in his local area to raise funds of over £4,000 for charities.  (see picture, left to right Col John Kelly, Group Captain Robert Kemp CBE QVRM AE DL , Lance Corporal Judd, Chev Peter Rae KLJ)


Lance Corporal Clark is a modest young man, 16 years old, who is a focused and determined individual and he is well worthy of our Award.


He was presented with his Award - a medal and a framed certificate - by Group Captain Robert M Kemp CBE QVRM AE DL Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Edinburgh and a  Scottish Director of the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.



The Commandery of the East of Scotland was established in early 2011  under the leadership of Chev R Peter Rae KLJ OMLJ and has more than 30 members.
