Hi Leigh

Thanks for your photo - the enamel work looks very nice.

However, I'm not altogether sure that it is a Masonic item for a couple of reasons: firstly, the lodge name and number don't tally up with anything on the list that I have although obviously (but rarely) they could have changed their name since then; secondly, and although nowhere near definitive, it is rare for a lodge item to have a red ribbon.

For those reasons, I wondered whether the top bar gave any clues about the fraternal order from which this originated: is it from the Buffaloes, perhaps?

Sincerely,

WM5806

While I'm lurking here in Masonic Medals & Jewels to post a thread asking for help re my photo of an Oxfordshire Light Infantryman, I'll take the opportunity to actually post the link to the thread on British & Empire Medals etc regarding this "Columbo Lodge 6644" item & its companion WWII British medals:

Any more info would be gratefully received, thanks

Suspicions even stronger now that this is from the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB), another fraternal order that has some similarities witn (but no connection to) Freemasonry.

Hope that helps,

Richard

HI

Looks like a RAOB Lodge Jewel. I am trying to get a list of all lodges once I get it I can check if the name and number are listed

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
