The Army Lodge was formed to provide a means for men with a military background to practise Freemasonry with others who have a similar interest.

Membership is drawn from among serving and past members of the ADF and from all those with an affinity for matters military.

The military atmosphere which characterises The Army Lodge meetings, particularly the dinner (the South) which follows each meeting makes this Lodge particularly attractive to all ranks, past and present, who are, or were, members of the Defence Forces.
