Master’s Declarations

The proposal that incoming Masters of the Worshipful Company of Fletchers should sign a declaration was made in 1938.  Masters only began doing this from 1945, after a book was presented by Mr Vining on 11 May 1943.  The declaration states that the Master will execute the office justly, faithfully, and diligently.  The first such declaration was signed by Frederick John Monkhouse Esquire on 18th July 1945.
