I wish you the best of luck with your Forum and my offer of assistance remains open if you should require it.

It is very kind of you. I have the impression that English freemasonry is much more open about the content of the rituals (except some few details), in a way which is surprising for Scandinavian freemasons who are obliged to keep quiet about our rituals.

Which version of the Craft degrees is worked in Kent, or does this depend on the choice of each lodge itself?

I am a member of 2 Lodges, one in Kent and one in London (my Mother Lodge). They both work Emulation ritual although you would not believe it if you were to visit.

Broderliga hälsningar fran Norra Skottland ,,,,,Hi Mike !!
In Scotland the ritual varies slightly even within our our small province of 4 Craft lodges However the "essentials" remain the same
We recently had a visitor from Essex South East England who was amazed to see the first degree worked in my Mother Lodge (and our Harmony afterwards!)l He was of course a mason from the English constitution and I think it was his 1st visit to a Scottish lodge but as he remarked its all part of education within the brotherhood
Best decription taken from another forum
"When the GLofS was formed in 1736 there existed approx 100 lodges in Scotland many of which had been in place for many years (ie) 15th/16th century. Because so many of these lodges had their own rituals, being completely independent and instead of the new Grand Lodge deciding to standardise ritual, it said that the lodges could use whichever ritual it pleased providing it conveyed the Masonic teachings and symbolism required to achieve the end result. Hence even today a lodge can use or change its ritual however it sees fit providing the candidates get the required teachings. I would add that the same is the case for the wide and varied Masonic regalia used in Scottish lodges. Isn't it a good idea to have different ritual and different regalia throughout the lodges."

I will thank Br:s Martin and McKay for their messages, furthering the knowledge about foreign land freemasonry among us Swedish brethren. Thank you very much, indeed!
