With sadness I forward an email received this afternoon from Past Deputy Provincial Grand Master, VWBro Richard Turpin, Secretary of Socrates Mark Lodge, announcing the passing of WBro Rev'd Philip Swindells earlier today.
Philip was a Joining Member to Socrates Mark and Mariner Lodges from the Mark Province of Bedfordshire and has variously held the Offices of Provincial Grand Asst Chaplain, Provincial Grand Deputy Chaplain and Provincial Grand Chaplain in this Province continuously since 2011. Philip will be sadly missed.
I will forward further details when they become available.
Sincerely & Fraternally,
