Turkish Master for London lodge
Seven years ago, members of Mandate Lodge, No. 4258, which meets at Great Queen Street in London, travelled to Istanbul to perform a twinning ceremony with Freedom Lodge, No.35.
Earlier this year, Ihsan Goren was installed as Master of the lodge, the first Turkish Worshipful Master since the twinning.
Mandate Lodge has steadily grown more international in its membership. At the Installation ceremony, the Master and Immediate Past Master of Freedom Lodge and several other brethren from Turkey, Holland, Italy, Nigeria and the West Indies were in attendance.
