While preparing to invade, the Nazis compiled a list of important UK targets. Freemasons' Hall was among the addresses in their "black book".

"British freemasons feared being rounded up after an invasion. They saw how freemasons were treated in Germany - where they were sent to concentration camps - and how lodges in the Channel Islands were ransacked.

"They became more secretive. By the time the war ended, this secrecy had become comfortable. We're trying to change now. People's ignorance about freemasonry has allowed a mythology to develop which portrays us a 'secret society', which we're not." - Provincial Master, Chris Connop
