History of Lodge St. John

Brethren all,
We've added a new page. The complete history of Thailand's oldest lodge, Lodge St. John is now online.
Written by the dashing and prolific, W. Bro.: Jim Soutar, this is a gripping and at

times agonizing tale of how Masonry almost didn't get started in the kingdom. It covers the rocky beginning during the reign of Chulalongkorn, through the gravy years of the thirties and near extinction during the Japanese occupation in World War II.
You'll also learn about Bangkok's brief flirtation with Shriners too! In short, it is a must read. Please check it out.
