WBro. John Thurlow was Initiated on 5th March 1949 in the Kingston Temple Lodge No. 4722, meeting at the Masonic Hall in Surbiton in the Province of Surrey. WBro. John was proposed by his father, WBro. Montague Arthur Thurlow, the then Director of Ceremonies of the Lodge, and who had been through the Chair in 1943. WBro. John was seconded by his uncle who acted as Junior Deacon for the ceremony and was Passed and Raised in 1950.

WBro. John progressed through the Lodge and became Worshipful Master at the May meeting in 1969. During his year, the Ladies' Night was held at a hotel in Croydon and the Festival Committee were very upset by having to increase the price of tickets from 42 Shillings to 45 Shillings.

Later, after his year in the Chair, WBro. John became Lodge Treasurer, a position he held for nearly 10 years. He is now an Honorary Member and Father of the Lodge.
