FAMOUS FREEMASONS
Lord Louis Mountbatten
[John Molson]
June 25, 1900 - August 27, 1979
Lord Louis Francis Albert Victor Nicholas Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma, was not a freemason.
"It was in 1947 that Lord Mountbatten was appointed Viceroy of India and, as such, became the Grand Master of the two Indian orders — the Star of India and the Indian Empire. This included automatic appointment to the highest ranks of these two orders, G.C.S.I. and G.C.I.E. respectively. He had become a K.St.J. in 1943. After the partition of India, Lord Mountbatten remained as Governor-General until 1948". Excerpted from www.cam.ac.uk [2004/05/14]
Alexander Albert Mountbatten, 1st Marquess of Carisbrooke (November 23, 1886 - February 23 1960)—Worshipful Master of Prince of Wales Lodge No. 259 in 1952 and Royal Colonial Institute Lodge No. 3556 in 1956—was a Grand Steward for the United Grand Lodge of England in 1956, and served on the board of the Royal Masonic Institution for Boys for several years. This may be the source of the confusion.
