English Freemasonry during the Great War
– The Prestonian Lecture –
When Britain declared war on Germany on 4 August 1914, Freemasonry in England faced unprecedented circumstances and Grand Lodge was forced to contend with the impact of a global war.
English Masonic Lodges nonetheless continued to meet during the war and the lecture and accompanying booklet account how Freemasonry and many Lodges reacted to the conflict. Much of the information has been researched from individual Lodge Histories and Minute Books.
The lecture encompasses Masonic relations with Germany before the war; Freemasons ‘called to the colours’; Masonic reaction to the declaration of war; how Lodges coped with the war years; German Lodges in England; prisoner of war camps; the war at sea; and German Zeppelin and bomber attacks.
After a successful professional career, Mike was initiated into Freemasonry in Middlesex in 1987. It rapidly became one of his main activities and now includes researching and writing on a range of Masonic subjects. Mike is a past Provincial Grand Orator for Middlesex and a member of the Grand Lodge Oration Scheme Committee; he has authored many papers, including the Norman B. Spencer prize essay.
In addition to his membership of QC, Mike is a member of the Temple of Athene (Research) Lodge, and other Middlesex Lodges. He is a Grand Officer in the Craft and Royal Arch, and is involved actively in a number of side orders. One of his other main interests is music, being an Organist and Chorister, and he also is a member of the David Bonner (Musicians) Lodge
