We are proud of our W. Bro Rob Dewbery who has just completed his year as Grand Sword Bearer in The Order of The Secret Monitor. The 11th November is an important day every year, but in 2021 in took on even more importance for Rob, as on that day, he was invested as Grand Sword Bearer in The Order of The Secret Monitor or The Brotherhood of David and Jonathan, in Grand Conclave, which was held in the Grand Temple at Great Queen Street.
Over the last 12 months, Rob has had the opportunity to go out with the Grand Team 6 times: the Consecration of a new Conclave in Bangor, North Wales; the Consecration of a new Conclave at Mark Masons Hall; the Installation of a Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler in Guernsey; the Installation of a Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler in Cheshire; a Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler in Scotland; and a Provincial Grand Supreme Ruler in Somerset. Unfortunately due to circumstances, Rob was only able venture out on 3 of the occasions, but those were all very enjoyable experiences, with all the usual comaradary one associates with Masonry in general, and that Order in particular, and the opportunity to travel if you so wished.
The culmination of his year, was on the 10th November this year, back at Great Queen Street. Rob tells us that it was very surreal for him to lead the Procession of the Grand Supreme Ruler into Grand Conclave, under The Arch of Steel, and then out again at the end of the meeting.
Rob goes on to tell us that it was a tremendous honour for him personally, and the height of his Masonic career so far, and something which he doesn't expect to be surpassed!
Many Congratulations Rob - All the members of the Prince of Wales Lodge No 951 are proud of your achievement - Very well done Sir!
