Forget Me Not lapel badge

Postby Dalkeith » Thu May 18, 2017 3:16 pm

Afternoon Brethren all,

Has anyone else seen all the Facebook posts regarding Dementia Awareness, and to show they are promoting this, the wearing of a Forget Me Not pin badge.

I am all for the awareness campaign and fund raising for this very worthwhile cause, however, I think that there may be a bit of confusion with the lapel pins.

I generally wear my masonic Forget Me Not badge on my work suits, and I have been approached by a Brother in London who spotted it and came over to say hello. My point is this - will people wearing the Dementia awareness ones be mistaken for Freemasons, and vice versa?

I am unaware if the charity knows of out connection to the Forget Me Not badge.

In one of the facebook postings, someone asked where to get some forget me nots and the reply was 'Masonic Regalia Suppliers', so some people are aware of the Masonic connection.

It's not the first time!

The Jill Dando Fund used a forget-me-not as its emblem some years ago, that led to some awkward conversations :) :) .
