Hello,
I have been asked by an elderly friend to ID a very old medal which belonged to her auntie whom had been given it by her husband upon his return from the War of Ypres, it is certainly not a campaign medal, I believe it is a silver Masonic Medal, I can find no inscription on it anywhere.
Does anyone know what is it, she would be very grateful for any help given
Many thanks
Maria

Hi Maria

I can definitely confirm that the jewel is not Masonic. From the style and shape it is very similar to fraternal jewels worn by the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB), Odd Fellows and some Temperance Orders. However, with the lack of symbolism on the jewel it is almost impossible to identify.

Regards

Andrew

Whilst I agree with you that this has all the appearance of a Fraternal award - there is also the possibility that it is

a WW1 Town or, City medal. These were awarded to the wounded and those invalided out. I mention this in order

that all possibilities are considered. Mervyn
