Remembrance Day

At our recent November 2021 Lodge meeting held at Freemasons Hall, London, the Lodge were delighted not only to welcome a new initiate into the Lodge, but as the day was close to Remembrance Day, The Vacant Chair Ceremony was performed, after which a wreath was laid at the memorial shrine within the Hall.
