Regret must reiterate what Paul has suggested, in that the medal ribbon bars are probably of very limited value, maybe a pound each or so, and they are from the RAOB - there don't seem to be quite so many collectors of their regalia/jewels/medals as there are of Masonic items.

The leather pouch would have probably held an apron and membership certificate. Limited value nowadays, as the price of the regalia means you really don't want to have to fold it in six to fit in there, but may have a value to someone for another purpose.

The coiled wire tassles are of a style from before WW2, or even WW1, but are of little value on their own. The final pieces which we call 'levels' and which resemble upside-down letter Ts, may be of some value if silver and hallmarked as such - perhaps £20-£40, depending on which auction and who wants them at the time - but if just electroplated base-metal, probably worth bugger all...

The green ribbon reminds me of some sort of advanced driving medal, but I could be wrong.

Hope that helps,

    • 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.
