Tributes were paid to Charles at the special meeting in Warrington Masonic Hall on 18 May and he was presented with an inscribed decanter and glasses on behalf of Academy Lodge No 9382 by a Royal Marine Cadet. In the Lodge, Alfred Roughsedge, Assistant Provincial Grand Master, outlined the long and distinguished service give by Charles not only to Freemasonry but also to his country during his time with the Royal Marines and many other charitable organisations.
...
Charles was presented with a special certificate from the Provincial Grand Master to mark his Diamond Jubilee as a Freemason.
In all there were two Assistant Provincial Grand Masters, a past Assistant Provincial Grand Master and 25 Grand Officers at the celebration meeting. Charles's distinguished Masonic career began on 12 April, 1944, when, while stationed at Chatham as a Gunnery Sergeant in the Royal Marines, he joined Per Mar Per Terram (By Sea, By Land) Lodge No 3609.
In his exemplary career in the Royal Marines, he saw service during the Second World War on board HMS Warspite. Returning to the UK he saw service in the Home Fleet in Northern Patrols with HMS Hood followed by further service aboard HMS Sheffield on the Russian convoys. In 1945 Charles saw service in the Far East while on HMS Anson and was specially commended by the Commander in Chief, Hong Kong. In June 1946 he was awarded the British Empire Medal (Military) for valuable service in the Far East and two years later was commissioned before going off to see again aboard HMS Duke of York and HMS Reward.
Charles was a Founder of Cathedral Lodge No 7753 in Portsmouth and became Worshipful Master of that Lodge in 1968. He was appointed as a PPrDepGSwdB in the Province of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
His service in the Royal Marines was further recognised in 1959 when he was promoted Captain and later that same year became a Major. In 1967 Charles was awarded the Order of the British Empire for outstanding efforts in his last two service appointments. When he moved to Warrington in 1978 he was a regular guest at St Oswald Lodge No 5170 and became a joining member. He served the Lodge as Almoner for many years and became its Worshipful Master in 1986.
His service to Masonry in the Province of West Lancashire resulted in him being appointed PPrSGD in 1982 and six years later he was honoured with the extremely high rank of Past Provincial Senior Grand Warden. In April 1991 he became Founding Senior Warden of Academy Lodge No 9382 and the following year was its Worshipful Master.
Charles is also a member of Navy Lodge No 2612 which meets at Great Queens Street, London.
