Candidates must have

(a) have been initiated in a Lodge under the United Grand Lodge of England,

(b) have been a Master Mason for at least one full year and be in good standing within the Craft.

Nowhere in the 18º is the Candidate asked to swear an oath: all the Obligations are promises. One may presume that the word of a man of the type invited to join the degree once given, is ample bond.

Regalia for the 18th degree is both simple and spectacular and comprises a red collar embroidered in gold braid with symbols and emblems of the Degree of Perfection.

Membership of the Order is not exclusively by invitation. Any Brother who is interested may enquire from the District Recorder or the Recorder of any Chapter.
