Hi David

I'm pretty sure it's not Masonic, but more connected (in every sense) with the wearing of a pocketwatch. The item you show is a seal, used for verifying the integrity of a wax seal on documents, being impressed into same when wax was still soft. Usually they had a design carved into them, a monogram or crest, or even a Masonic design, but it's not part of Masonic regalia. Hope that helps,

Richard

Hi

The big medal with the blue ribbon is a good Past Masters jewel which might be Hallmarked Silver or gold.The White ribbon Jewel is a Royal Arch Jewel and the other two Jewels are Charity Jewels issued each year,

    • 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.
