On Friday 15th September 2017 I attended Edinburgh defensive Band No.278 Supremes Chapter, for their annual installation. It was an unusual day, First they opened Operative Cryptic Council No 41 and installed the office bearers before Closing. They then opened the Edinburgh Defensive Band Chapter and Adjourned it and opened Edinburgh Defensive Band Cryptic Council No.278. They then installed the office Bearers with the Depute first Grand Principal being Installed as Thrice Illustrious Master, the Council was Closed and the Chapter Resumed the Office bearers were then Installed via a Declaration as they were the Same offices as in Supreme. It was a long but Great Day and we did not stay for the Harmony Meal after the Meeting.
