The Rev. Abbott Roland Upcher (known as Roland) was a Freemason. At Halesworth, where he was Rector prior to moving to Stradbroke, he was in the 'Prudence Lodge', and he was sometime Provincial Grand Chaplain of Suffolk. In this photo The Rector is wearing clerical robes and Masonic regalia - probably the insignia of his office of Grand Chaplain.
Thank you Graham for this information. Canon Upcher was a very interesting man.
