To commemorate the 300th anniversary of the formation of the first Grand Lodge of England, the Masonic Philatelic Club are releasing a limited edition commemorative sheet of ten images of Masonic stained glass windows and ten Royal Mail stamps.

To commemorate the 300th anniversary of the formation of the first Grand Lodge of England, the Masonic Philatelic Club are releasing a  limited edition commemorative sheet of ten images of Masonic stained glass windows and ten Royal Mail stamps.

The stamps and images of the stained glass windows are framed by a piece of Masonic art, forming the background to the whole sheet. The two churches whose windows are featured are the Kingston Parish Church in Jamaica and St Peter’s Church in Leicester.

The sheet was designed by Ken Elston, Chairman of the Masonic Philatelic Club, with help form Mo Elston, Editor of the Masonic Philatelic Club Magazine. The images from Jamaica had been the subject of a design created by artist Susan Shirley on an earlier set of Masonic postage stamps issued by Jamaica & Cayman Islands in 1992.
