The Canute Tide was first published in January 1973 and continued through until the late 1990’s. There were a few editions published in 2000 and again in 2009 and 2010.
Communication is the life blood of any organisation and the Canute Tide was an important part of the Lodge communication process before the days of e-mail, Facebook and web sites. These publications contain much humour and many interesting articles, some of which are still relevant today.
They are illustrated by the brilliant cartoons of the late W.Bro. John Cackett.
Thankfully W. Bro Don Allcock retained a full set of the issues and I am much obliged to him for making them available to share with us all. I am in the process of scanning them and publishing them here on the Canute web site. They are in numerical order, but you will see that they were not very good at keeping to the correct month back then.
Please take the time to read them. I am sure you will find them both entertaining and enlightening.
You can also download them and print them to read at your leisure. I hope you enjoy them.
Just click on the file name to open the various issues.
