The Worshipful Master’s Collar

 

  At the Poole meeting on the 12th May 2001, a new ornate and engraved collar was presented to W.M. Robin Austin, by W. Bro. Harry Gould. The Brethren had previously approved the purchase, at a cost of £256.53.

This first collar bears the name of every Past Master since the Consecration, until such time as all the engraved panels were filled in 2019.

In that year,the Brethren approved the purchase of a new collar, at a cost of £330. On the 14th November 2019, W.M. Barry Gray wore the replacement for the first time, and his was the first name to be engraved.

The original was now to be worn by the Immediate Past Master in future, and the legacy of all of the Past Masters is thus preserved.
