Freemasonry and the Army

#1
No idea where to put this thread, so I stuck in here. I've noticed a few masonic symbols used as avatars for various ARRSE users. I was wondering, are there many military masonic lodges? Are there many regiments with strong masonic links?

Just curious...

The RMP have a Masonic Lodge and I guess a few others have as well. There is a link on the AGC forum on this 'Freemasons and RMP' I think it is called.

Just remeber that the socialist rabble in power at the moment ASA 'Tony and his cronies' are anti-Mason. They don't like anything they can't control. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Saddam etc were anti-Mason so Tone's in good company.

Thanks, all my questions are answered there pretty well.

That would be a waste of time there are many proper journalists in Lodges too.

I took your advice and did a search and WOW !! it has been done to death, however, as a new member to ARRSE, and with an interest in Masonry (not the stone type) it was pleasant to read back and find out views.
I am sorry if I have awakened your latent liking / disliking / hatred / loving / loathing of Freemasonry.

As an Ex serviceman and current Freemason, I would like to say there is nothing incompatable betweent the two. If you are at all intrigues I would suggest a vist to the United Grand Lodge of England, Queen ST London, then ask at a local lodge about it, most will have open days and visitors evenings throughout the year.

You may think its full of ole duffers, some lodges are, some are not, in my lodge over half are under 40 (including me and another ex-serviceman) and at least 5 under 35.

If your into a bit of history, a bit of "pomp and ceremony" and the chance to meet loads of new people all round the world, enquire to join, you never know you might enjoy it.

There are lots of masons around. on the basis that most want to keep their membership somewhat private, they do not advertise the fact. Its simply because there is too much crap and chatter about masonry. so here goes. There is a circuit of military lodges: Circuit of Service Lodges 2) you have to ask to join. you are not approached and the crack licked to attract you. 3) its serious stuff, its about your morality so is not about greasing your way across the pole. if that is your intention go and join the other lot.

Masonry will not - get you a commission, or a seat on the board. But it is great fun and you learn a lot about yourself so I would recommend it. And then I hear crys of its a boys only club - there are ladies lodges and they are equally as commendable as the male version. If you want to join email me and (within reason) I will connect you to your lodge (preferably your own corps or regiment -its better that way), If you have an interest in the RAMC AMS QARANC or army medicine - we would love to hear from you - check out In Arduis Fidelis - we are looking for new members all the time , w do n ot ahve 'rank quota'. cpls and above in our case.

good ritual.
