Installation of PGM or equivilent

Recommended Posts

When a PGM or equivilent in other Orders is Installed this is conducted by a ruler in Grand Lodge or equivilent and not, as in individual units, by their predecessor.(except in certain Orders)

In addition the outgoing member is not allowd to attend the Installation, and typically stays away for 12 months.

Has it always been like this and if not when did this start?

No idea, but I don't think it's 'not allowed', I'm given to understand that it's really to give the new ruler a chance to get his 'feet under the table' without feeling his predecessor is looking over his shoulder.

Agreed, Sontaran, it's just plain ordinary good manners for him to keep out of the way and keep his head down while the new chap destroys all he's done!

Which is what generally occurs...... but like any new broom head, it is generally speaking only effective for the first 100 days, then it becomes no different from the previous one 😀
