How it came about:
Reg had been invited by his Brother-in-Law to attend a couple of Ladies Nights; and also to a Charity Dinner, by a salesman in Covent Garden Market, where he was working.
A member at the Charity Dinner asked him if he was “On the Square?” It was noted that Reg had obviously no idea what he was talking about, so he asked him if he was a member of the Craft, to which Reg replied: “No”.
Shortly afterwards Reg asked his Brother-in-Law “how do you join?”, and he replied; “you have to ask someone you know who is a Mason.” This he did, and it was explained that this would take some time – in this case, about 8 months. Reg was asked to complete the application form, and the rest is history!
