Alphabetical list of membership is inserted hereinafter

Speculative Society of Edinburgh

Lodge Canongate Kilwinning No 2

 

 

 

 

NB. This list of members of the Speculative Society falls into three categories as follows:

  1. Extraordinary members with, a sodality number, full name, qualifications, and occupation all taken from the 1968 History of the Speculative Society.  This basic data has been updated with more recent information, which has been gleaned, mostly from the web.
  2. Ordinary members with a sodality number which has been allotted to the Speculators (as they appear in the 1971-72 Roll) in ascending order, starting with the last number in the 1968 History.  These numbers have an asterisk to show their assumed status.  The members in this category are taken from the Spec’s 1971-72 Roll of Officers of the Society and Ordinary members, which shows only initials for first names, Surname, and qualifications.  It has been necessary to fill in the other details by informed conjecture.
  3. Ordinary, and extraordinary members, without a sodality number, and with first names initialled only.  To which are added details attributed by informed conjecture.  These names were provided by members of the Spec, and are assumed as being genuine but require official verification from the Speculative Society.  The Secretary of the Speculative Society is unwilling to provide verifying information.

Queen Victoria School’s governing body is the BOARD OF HER MAJESTY'S COMMISSIONERS who are responsible to the Secretary of State for Defence.  “Spec” members, Lord Cullen, Lord Ross and Prince Philip have all been on the Board and had a leading legal responsibility for the custody and care of the pupils at QVS.  Not least, those who were physically and sexually abused.

Non-Spec members - but could well be Masons nevertheless - Malcolm Rifkind, Ian Lang and Michael Forsyth, as Secretaries of State for Scotland respectively from 11 January 1986 to 28 November 1990, 28 November 1990 to 5 July 1995, and 5 July 1995 to 2 May 1997, were all Presidents of the Board of Her Majesty’s Commissioners.

As Secretary of State for Defence from 10 April 1992 to 5 July 1995, MALCOLM RIFKIND had PRINCIPAL responsibility for the children at QVS during that period.
