Wallers, Slaters, Paviors, Plaisterers and Bricklayers
Deputy Master Mason
This is a Masonic Society which exists to perpetuate a memorial of the practices of operative Free Masons existing prior to modern speculative Freemasonry. Membership of the Society is restricted to those who are Master Masons, Mark Master Masons and Holy Royal Arch Companions in good standing.
The Society is open only to Freemasons who are in good standing with or are members of a Craft Lodge, a Royal Arch Chapter and a Mark Master Masons' Lodge.
The regalia is minimal and consists of a blue cord or blue collarette from which is suspended the badge of the member's grade. Badges are simply exchanged as progression is made. All members wear the distinctive Society tie.
Lest we Forget!
"The Society has ordinarily generated considerable loyalty and affection among its members and, in addition to the merits of its ceremonies and practices, one reason is that the Society fills a notable gap in the masonic structure.
Speculative masons are happy to trace their origins to the practices of the ancient stone masons, but many then tend to forget all about them."
The Operatives exist to ensure that we do not all forget!
The Society now has more than two thousand members.
While a member of the TSCA, if you travel long distances, you are eligible to be put on the Master List which guarantees your reservation being made at least a year in advance plus a special rate with no parking fees if you drive.
Your obligation is to provide the Hampton Inn with a Credit Card to hold the reservation and if you should not be able to attend, you must call to cancel your reservation.
