On Monday 27th September 2021, at a meeting of the Court of Aethelbald No 62 in Keynsham, a quadruple Instruction Ceremony was carried out by 93 year old RW Bro Mervyn Western, PJGW, WM of the Court.
The Worshipful Master, Mervyn gave a fine performance, which was appreciated by all in attendance, which included Deputy Grand Master RWBro Tony Burke, Grand Prior RW&EmBro Chris Ansell and Deputy Provincial Grand Master WBro Andrew Barrett. Three of the brethren were Instructed as a courtesy Instruction for the soon-to-be formed Court of King Ecgberht.
Many expressed their wonderment at the ritual and reflected on their own ritual standards, when compared to this gentleman. The evening was greatly enjoyed by all who attended.
