Junior Steward (JS)
Like the Senior Steward, the Junior Steward’s Jewel is also the Cornucopia, and, like the Senior Steward, he is an appointed officer of the Lodge.
The Junior Steward understudies the Senior Steward’s position, filling in for the Senior Steward in his absence. The Junior Steward’s principle role is to assist the Senior Steward and the Senior Deacon in the preparation of candidates.
Both the Senior and Junior Stewards carry rods, on top of which are the jewels of their offices. The rods represent England’s Lord High Steward’s rod in the House of Lords.
The Junior Steward position is similar to that of an Assistant Supervisor.
