P.M. Bro. James Thyne, P.M. James Hall, P.M. Bro. Gordon Carruthers and P.M. Bro. Stuart Lauder visited our French Brethren in 2018 for their annual Installation. As we had a few days to spare, our French Brethren showed us some of the sites.

Thursday we went to Nimes

It rained a wee bit

We Walked round the “Maison Darree”

The Roman Arena in Nimes Which is still in use for Bull Fighting
