Old Ruthinian Lodge No. 9399 Re-enacted The Empty Chair Ceremony

On Saturday 9th November the Old Ruthinian Lodge No. 9399 re-enacted The Empty Chair Ceremony.

This ceremony dates back to 1875, a decade after the close of the American Civil War when it was used in Freemasons Lodges to pay tribute to those who did not return from the war.

Since then it has been used by many Lodges at Remembrance Day to pay homage to those Freemasons who fell during WWI, WWII, and other wars; or it may be used to remember Brethren who have passed to the Grand Lodge above.
