Military Lodges and Associations

Recommended Posts

Greetings to all the Masonic collectors and hopefully a few military collectors who may stray this way!

Here's the first of two postings:

A Founder's jewel for the New Zealand Expeditionary Force Masonic Association that has two bars stating "Founded in" and "France 1917". The jewel is made by Kenning and Son of London, from 18ct gold and appears to be dated 1923. There is also a name and number engraved on the back.

Can anyone tell me anything about this Association, please?

And here's the second Masonic item with military associations:

It's a jewel from the Lodge of Antiquity in Montreal, celebrating their 150th jubilee in 1902. Interestingly, it also has on it "46", "South Devon", "Dominica" and "Sevastopol". I assume this to be a reference to the 46th Regiment of Foot which were known as the South Devons, I believe. I also believe these to be their battle honours.

Can anyone tell me if there was a lodge that travelled with the regiment that settled in Montreal?

Does the Lodge still exist?

Would be grateful for any information. Have looked in Lane's Miltary Lodges without any luck.

W.M 5806 if you are not already aware the 'Circuit of Service Lodges' have a presence on the 'net. Haven't got the URL to hand though.

There are also 2 Lodges with Travelling Warrants working under the Irish Constitution - Glittering Star (Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters) and St. Patrick's (Dragoon Guards).

Forgive me if I'm teaching you to suck eggs!! :speechless: I'm still a :unsure: F.C for the present!!!!

    • 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.
