A highly colourful Malta meeting was held in the Province of Monmouth and South Wales in November when seven candidates were admitted to the Ancient and Masonic Order of St John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta.
This annual Provincial Malta Meeting cut quite a sight with Bro Knights robed in the red, white and black regalia of the Malta Degree together with Knights in the red and white Templar regalia also.
The meeting this year attracted a particularly large number of brethren from right across the south of Wales from Chepstow to Milford Haven.
Presided over by the Provincial Prior for Monmouth and South Wales, RE Kt Dr Paul Richard Calderwood, the ceremonial was largely conducted by the Provincial Sub-Prior, E Kt David Francis Court â€“ and in an exemplary manner.
As the Provincial prior said in his address: It was so good to see so many Bro knights in attendance and so many new entrants seeking to extend their masonic knowledge.
