Grand RAM Assembly

On Tuesday the 10th December, twenty Royal Ark Mariners from East Anglia travelled down to Great Queen Street to attend the Annual Grand RAM Assembly; Presided over by the Pro Grand Master who invested four members from our province with Grand Rank. A much-deserved honour for them all. Below is a selection of those attending from our Province who arrived at the bar first giving them time to pose for this photo.


The day was very successful and rewarding with the Brethren enjoying themselves during the afternoon, despite a few teething problems with delayed trains on the way down to London.

During his address to the assembled Brethren, the Pro Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother Raymond Smith, also unveiled a new Royal Ark Mariner Tracing board, which I am sure you will agree is most colourful and inspiring. This new board will be available for Lodges to buy, if they so wish, in the new year.

We ended the day dining in the Grand Connaught Rooms where the Pro Grand Master took wine with all 150 of the recipients who received Grand Rank.
