Family freemason medal research

Postby FreemasonJar » Mon Jan 04, 2016 3:07 pm

hello,

New here!
And joined specifically to find some answers, I hope you can help.

Last year my partners Grandmother moved into a retirement home and we were given some items from her house during the clear out.
One of these items is a case that contains a full masonic uniform, plus a spare, a certificate and four medals.

It seems to belong to her older brother although the entire family thought it was the Grandfathers, until I looked at it today.

I have no specific questions, however, what piqued my interest was that inital research shows the medals are from a Scottish based lodge (Fleur de Lys) yet the brother was a London based man.

All information about what type of medals they are and lodge information etc etc etc is greatly welcomed. We are very fascinated by it all.

Here is the record of the Lodge

http://www.hrionline.ac.uk/lane/record.php?ID=10216

It amalamayed with another Lodge and it looks like it is a UK Lodge.

The Woeshipful Past Master Jewel is the one of interest [ with the lodge name on it ] it is given to the Master of a Lodge when his year inthe chair is finished.

The latin 'vicesimus tertius' seems to mean 'The twenty third'

The Apron is a UK Lodge Worshipful Master apron.

Just wondering what a UK Lodge might be! (19)

And for info, the other jewels are charity jewels; they mark donations to periodic fund raising efforts for one or other of the Masonic Charities

Seeing this PM jewel is quite poignent as my mother lodge is No 6179.

Technically it is a UK Lodge but not Scottish as was suggested, England or UGLE is what I should have said.

I am the same with Colour and Religion I just do not see no difference.
