As you may have heard by now, there has been a lot of confusion lately regarding the flag pins versus the standard Fourth Degree pins that we received at our own Exemplifications. A few weeks ago we received an email from Supreme stating that the flag pins are no longer to be used, then at Exemplification they were handing out the flag pins to all members to wear that day. To further complicate things, the new members at the Exemplification were given the old standard Fourth Degree pins.
So at this point in time I would like to advise all members who attend any honour guard or other formal event to carry both pins with them. Bottom line is that we all are supposed to wear the same pin when we do honour guard duties, so let’s be prepared by carrying both pins with us, just in case.
