Following the reporting of the death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg the Worshipful Master, His Officers and Brethren of the Household Division Lodge express their condolences to Her Majesty the Queen.
As well as being a former Regimental Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, Prince Philip was also a Freemason initiated into Navy Lodge 2612 in 1952 having been proposed by his Father in Law, King George VI.
It is with regret that the Household Division Lodge has to report the passing of our founding Lodge secretary W.Bro Peter Hardwick PAGDC, PPSGW. Peter a former Grenadier was a stalwart of Freemasonry and the Lodge holding the position of Secretary for every year since the consecration of our Lodge, only stepping aside from the role once to take up his place as Worshipful Master of the Lodge in 2003.
Congratulations to all the Buckinghamshire Freemasons who received first appointments or promotions from Provincial Grand Lodge.
