Musket, Pike and Drum Lodge Consecrated – Provincial Grand Lodge of Staffordshire

Over 100 brethren gathered at Ashfield House Burton on Trent to witness the Consecration of Musket Pike and Drum Lodge No.9906, the lodge of historical re-enactors. The Provincial Grand Master RW Bro Dr Alexander Ian Stewart TD, assisted by his team, conducted the Consecration of the lodge, and the Primus Worshipful Master, W.Bro Paul Barrass, was Installed by the Deputy Provincial Grand Master VW Bro John V Renaudon.

While many of the thirty Founders were present, some were absent serving their country as a number of members are active or past members of the armed forces. One of the functions of the lodge is to act as a living memorial to all those Freemasons who have given their lives in the service of their country.

Membership is not restricted only to those who have an interest in historical re-enactment, but is also open to those who share the Lodge’s love of history. The Lodge will always hold its annual Installation meeting in Staffordshire, but will meet by dispensation in other Provinces in suitable historical premises. The lodge already has members not only from this country, but from different parts of the world.

Fifteen brethren are waiting to become joining members and there are nine Candidates. The first four Candidates will be Initiated by dispensation at Leek Masonic Hall on Saturday the seventh of November.
