Tried to take a look at November -Photo-Of-The-Month, told that I do not have high enough security clearance.
Posibilities:

#1 I will have to practice my special handshake.

#2 Joint a different 'Lodge'.

#2 Go there this Sunday and try to find the secret nuclear weapons/chemical-biological store that the picture must obviously refer to.

Error!
This photograph requires a higher level of security clearance.

I suspect that it may be a modern archive photo that cannot be publically displayed simply because of sensetive access/landowner issues.
If publically viewable then the landowners may be a little agrieved......

Sorry all round folks, that photo is one that's just available to (the one or two) admins because of access and legal issues. There's no funny stuff going on behind the scenes, it only displayed because of a glitch in the photo of the month code where it wasn't checking for admin status ('cos I never anticipated an admin only photo would appear there - but as it only takes 1 vote for a photo to appear I should have considered that).

No offence intended to any parties, the 'do not have security' is just the standard message when (for example) a non registered user tries to access a registered user only photo. I should probably re-write that message to be a little more polite.

Especially no offence intended to people who know where it is, indeed have been there but still can't see it.

I just don't want to rock the boat and I have to be careful what appears on here, otherwise it's me the landowners etc are likely to come after.
