St James's, London SW1 on Wednesday, 10th December 1919.
Our first Preceptor was the Very Illustrious and Eminent Knight Colonel Charles Warren Napier-Clavering, GCT, Great Seneschal,

Membership of the Order of the Temple is open to all Royal Arch Masons who profess the Trinitarian Christian Faith.

The Masonic Order of Knights Templar and Malta is based on the customs of the mediaeval predecessors. However, there is no direct link with that Order.
