The James Mercury
Lodge No 8599
was opened in 1953. It has moved about the
Island of Cyprus over the years and is
now based at Dhekelia Barracks, Larnaca,
next to the old customs building in our own
rented premises, actually, an old church.
We feel very lucky that the club is used
solely for the RAOB, and we consider the
premises as the flagship of the RAOB in Cyprus, as we have the facilities to exhibit all the Lodge’s antiquities and treasures (if you can call them that!). Huge improvements have been carried out by the members, and we now have a building we are proud of.
The lodge meets with 20 to 24 regular members, sometimes more, and we have 34 compliant members on the books.
Always check the website for events, which happen quite regularly, and also check www.hoalt.org <http://www.hoalt.org> for other social events we regularly have, including live bands.
All visitors will be made very welcome at any event we hold and you can almost guarantee a cheerful and enjoyable afternoon/night in our company.

The Troodos Pride of Cyprus Lodge No 10595
Was opened on the 2nd December 1996. The main reason for its opening was to keep the number of lodges on the island to an amount that would keep the island’s PGL viable. It was decided that it would be mainly a civilian lodge and would meet in Limassol rather than on one of the military camps on Cyprus. This would make it easier for us to get visitors to lodge without having to go through security checks.
The first meeting was held on the 5th January 1997 in a local pub called the Ploughman’s Inn, whose landlord, Gordon, was also a Buff. As in many circumstances the Pub changed hands and we were forced to find an alternative meeting place. The Lodge now meets in the UKCA club in Limassol (the Chairman of the club was also a Buff).
The Lodge meets every alternate Sunday at 10 a.m. We meet with regular attendances of around 14 to 17 brethren each meeting. Visitors are, of course, always welcome.
For enquiries please contact our C Sec Bro.
The Dhekelia Garrison
is a new lodge and has been running since
2009 but has been successful and is now
quite affluent. The lodge shares some
members with James Mercury and vice
versa, it was designed to be a family
oriented lodge and has promoted
buffaloism through its social events held
after the lodge on Sunday afternoon.
Working with the benefit of a dedicated lodge room with its own tyle something of a rarity these days and the purpose built rostrums, as well as the very well stocked bar, it's fortunate to be able to hold social events.
The lodge is open every Sunday from 12 noon until 2pm and is attended regularly with 14 to 18 members but can swell considerably for events.
