From the Provincial Prior – Saturday 19th March 2022

I am very saddened to announce that our Chancellor, E. Knight Leon Whitfield, passed this afternoon after his very short illness. 

Leon was initiated into Lyndhurst Lodge in the New Forest in 1982 and exalted into Wilfrid Attenborough Chapter in 1985. He was installed into Knights Templar in 1995, taking the Chair in 2002 of St. Mary and St. Michael Preceptory. As well as being honoured by Province and Great Priory, he played pivotal roles as the Commander of the Provincial Priors Bodyguard and Marshal of the Provincial 1825 Ritual Demonstration Team. 

He will be very sadly missed by all the Knights of the Province.

Chancellor: E.Kt. Leon Whitfield
