The Jubilee Convocation was held at the Park Court Hotel, Lancaster Gate, London W2, on Friday 10th May 1974, by dispensation granted by Supreme Grand Chapter. 56 Companions attended the Meeting, including 32 visitors, a total number almost double that of any previous meeting in the history of the Chapter.

Due to the illness of the first Principal, E.Comp Robert Ridout, who had had to undergo a serious operation. E.Comp H.F.Waddy, IPZ, acted as First Principal.

E.Comp Roy A.Wells, PAGDC, Scribe E of the Domatic Chapter of Instruction and Master of Quatuor Coronati Lodge, gave an address, “The Royal Arch as the Perfection of the Master’s Degree”, which was heard with keen attention and was followed by a lively question and answer session.

Much of the after proceedings were recorded on film by Comp John Ridout, son of the MEZ. (E.Comp H.F.Waddy has a copy of this film).
