Ridings’ Tablers Lodge paid a visit to a military lodge in York, called Invictus.
The Lodge was created in 2018 for serving and ex military personnel, and this was its first Installation. This is an event where a new Master of the lodge is “Installed” into the chair, and appoints his officers for the year ahead.
It was a very fun night, with a great deal of military pomp and flair. At the festive board, the meal after the meeting, we were all instructed how to use take part in the masonic military tradition of “Firing the Toast”, by crashing down thick “firing glasses” onto tables in unison as a response to the toasts. It was a very well attended event and hearing everyone “firing” at once was a loud and impressive affair.
