First 2019 Prestonian Lecture for Mike Karn
QC Lodge member Mike Karn gave his first delivery of the 2019 Prestonian Lecture, Freemasonry and the Great War: Masonic reaction to the war years, at William Preston Lodge No. 766 in London on Friday 25 January. This was, of course, also Burn’s Night and the event was celebrated accordingly.
It was clear that William Preston Lodge values its association with the Prestonian Lecturers and after his delivery, which was exceptionally well received, Mike was offered honorary membership of the lodge and a donation made to his chosen charity.
The lodge then moved to the Freemasons’ Tavern in Long Acre (a short walk from Freemasons’ Hall) for a Burns’ lunch complete with haggis, a piper, and the address to the haggis. The lunch was hugely enjoyable with friendship much to the fore. The attending brethren included a number from France (there is a William Preston Lodge in Paris), Belgium and Serbia, as well as those from the UK. And alongside Mike Karn, four members of QC Lodge were present, all Prestonian Lecturers themselves: John Wade, Aubrey Newman, Mike Kearsley and Roger Burt.
