watermark

13 posts in this topic

Hi, I was looking at some books* which I had passed down to me from my Great Grandad (he was a mason) and noticed a watermark (FLATFORD MILL) I was wandering if any Freemasons based in the UK would have any information for me on what the connection is between Flatford Mill (not a paper mill) and the Masons, It would be greatly appreciated if you could message me privately. Thanks

*The book is over 60 years old and it only appears in one book

The best I can do is that the most iconic and famous of paintings done of the Flatford Mill was done by John Constable in 1816. Constable was a famous artist - and a long-time member of Freemasonry... and it is frequently seen that Freemasons have a habit of purchasing/collecting artworks done by other Freemasons.

I have several works by Freemasons, myself - though nothing as beautiful as Constable's work.

Well no not really, it was a genuine question asking about a secret society, in a secret society forum.

So unless you have something to help me with p*** off!!!

Could you give us some more information about the book and the watermark please? Perhaps a pic of the watermark if it's possible?

You post a topic and don't care to respond for almost a month.

You post a topic and provide no detail, i.e.:

1. What is the title of the book,?

2. Who published the book?

3. When was the book published?

4. Is the book itself Freemason related?

5. As Rashore asked, can you provide an image of the watermark?

You do know what a watermark is don't you?

So, we'll expect another response from you in another month or so, or not?

I forgot to forego the prerequisite smiley. :)

Which, by definition, I have done, and I should know better.

My apologies.

well, I do have my moments haha :tsu:

All I got so far (probably nothing) but when I was trying to research Flatford Mill I came across an FSC website and someone wrote about, remembering seeing Prince Philip arrive by helicopter one dark evening in the early 1950s. I know that Prince Philip is alleged to be involved with the Freemasons, so if that got anyone's interest, post away XD.

(If any of that makes sense lol)

Here's an extract from their website: "Field Studies Council, FSC, is the only environmental education charity dedicated solely to providing informative and enjoyable opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to discover, explore, be inspired by, and understand the natural environment."
