The Signing of The Armed Forces Covenant
The Provincial Grand Master, R W Phill Hall, will be signing the Armed Forces Covenant at a ceremony to be held at 2.00 pm on Tuesday, June 14 2022, in the Regimental Chapel of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment in the Collegiate Church of St Mary in Warwick. Lt Col Samantha Brettell from HQ West Midlands will sign on behalf of the MoD.
By signing the Armed Forces Covenant, the Provincial Grand Lodge of Warwickshire, like the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), will be able to demonstrate its support to the members of the Armed Forces in a number of areas, including education, family wellbeing, getting a home, starting a new career, access to healthcare and financial assistance.
Warwickshire Freemasonry has a strong armed forces background throughout its lodges. This partnership, therefore, represents an important step in further supporting both active and retired military personnel.
We intend to have the British Legion Colour Party present with their Legion Standard and Union Flag and W Bro M Shanahan, a member of Lodge of St Andrew will be attending to represent the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
We wish to invite all members of the Province of Warwickshire who are serving or former members of HM Armed Forces, and anyone else who so wishes, to join us on June, the 14th to witness this important and public commitment of support. The dress code for the day is uniform or lounge suits; decorations and awards to be worn if desired.
We are planning a buffet lunch at 12.00 pm at Alderson House prior to the ceremony. If you wish to attend the ceremony and/or the buffet lunch, (£15.00/head), please click on the link below. Please note that the deadline to reserve your seat is 6 June 2022.
