MASONIC BIOGRAPHIES | FAMOUS FREEMASONS | BADEN POWELL, FREEMASON?
Baden-Powell.
Unidentified freemason.
While there is no reason to believe that Lord Baden-Powell was a freemason, these two photographs have led to a mistaken claim that he was. Click on the images for larger versions.

Taylor, D., Souvenir of the siege of Mafeking from original photographs by D. Taylor. [s.l. : s.n., 1900?] (Sheffield : Leng) 1 v. ; 29 x41 cm. There is a stamp which suggests that the original is in the possession of Centro Studi Scout in Parma. Picture No. 2 is titled "Officers of the Protectorate Regiment, taken at Ramathlabama Camp, before the Siege" and includes "Col. Baden-Powell, 5th Dragoons." Picture No. 45, titled "Group of Free Masons" includes one man who bears a superficial resemblance to Baden-Powell. He is sitting in the front row of the group, all of whom are wearing collars and aprons. In the second and third rows there are three men wearing sashes with a large diamond pattern and jewels/medals on their left breasts.
