The Freeman’s Oath

On becoming a Fletcher, a solemn oath is sworn and this has not changed since the creation of the Worshipful Company of Fletchers in the 14th century.

In brief, new Fletchers swear that they will be true to the Sovereign, keep the peace, obey the Company’s rules and pay their dues.

The picture shows the Freeman’s Oath of Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery who received the Honorary Freedom of the Company on 12 July 1946.  For further information, please see item 05 Famous Fletchers.
