Procession in Bulowayo

The English had taken Freemasonry with them wherever they settled in the growing British Empire. In due time District Grand Lodges were established in many parts of India, the Far and Middle East, the West Indies, Australia, New Zealand and Africa. The Prince of Wales and his successor HRH the Duke of Connaught (Grand Master 1901-1938) visited Lodges or met delegations of brethren wherever they travelled in the Old Empire. The Duke is seen here processing to lay the foundation stone of the New English Church at Bulawayo in 1910.
