Greetings from a Petitioner!

Postby Mack » Wed Aug 27, 2014 2:18 pm

Dear all,

I've been lurking for a while and have finally taken the plunge to say hello.

I'm currently in the process of applying (is that the right term? Is petitioner the right term at this early stage?!) to a lodge in the South East although haven't arranged my first meeting with them yet.

While I'm keen to join I appreciate it is a commitment on both sides so am prepared for a long process. I have deliberately stayed away from reading anything that might spoil what is to come if accepted, it's a tough exercise in self-discipline though!

I was wondering if there are any active military or ex-military members on this board?

Thanks
Mack

Welcome to he forum - there are a fair few ex and current uniform wearers amongst the throng

How far along in the process of applying are you?

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'm ex army so we appear to have a military full house!

I'm fairly early on in the process. Have spoken to members of a lodge and am in the process of arranging a first meeting.

Welcome.

I'm ex-RAF and a member of a military Lodge (www.raflodge.org). There are loads of Lodges with a military history, some of which have evolved and some of which maintain quite strict membership criteria but all of them are very welcoming to visitors!
