    We don't get ours until we give back our MM proficiency catechism. They say we can wear it if we want to, but I've never seen one on a Brother that was still with us.
    Mine is still in the original tube.

    I am the W:.M:. Of our District's Memorial Lodge and if any Brother or family of the Brother requests the funeral service it will be provided for Him. Funerals are all on the level no matter position.


    May you be blessed with a glorious day!

    Yours, in His service.

    After being raised and presented with my apron I was told that the only time that it would be worn was when I was in my casket.

    Here's the pertinent part of our Apron Presentation to the new MM:
    "This Apron, the special gift of this Lodge, is yours to wear upon all proper occasions throughout an honorable life, and at your death, is to be placed upon the coffin that contains your lifeless remains and with them shall be laid beneath the silent clods of the valley."
    I occasionally see Brethren wear their lambskins on special occasions, particularly when receiving service awards and the like.

    I wear mine when I'm not an officer (so I haven't worn it much), and when visiting.

    I have not worn mine since I was raised. I know several Brothers that do wear theirs. I've now got a PM apron which resides in my traveling apron case and that's the one I'll wear until departing for the Celestial Lodge above.

    Not at all, it is held in a plastic wrapper, in a footlocker with my most valuable irreplaceable items that will be buried with me when i depart this mortal coil.
