Founding of the Chapter

Once the Lodge became established, a petition was soon sought for the foundation of the British Sub Aqua Chapter, and the Consecration Ceremony was again held at Freemasons’ Hall on Thursday, 27th June 1985.

E. Comp. Commander Higham, Grand Scribe E. again presided, and was assisted by the Most Hon. the Marquess of Northampton. Of the fourteen Founders and First Officers of the Chapter, eight were also original Founders of the Lodge. E. Comp. Harry Gould was invested as the first MEZ.

Chapter meetings are held before lunch on the same Saturdays as the Lodge meetings – another particularly uncommon practice between Lodges and their Chapters – in order to minimise the travelling demands on the members.
