Turkish Masonic badge Yükseliş lodge

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have this neck badge, but I have only minor information about it. It is some sort of badge of the Turkish Yükseliş lodge (lodge # 12), which is established in the Ankara region on the 24th of June 1950. It had approximately 120 members. I believe the lodge does not exist anymore, since all information I have found dates before 2004. The last grand master of the lodge (Ufuk BULUT) had this position in the years 2003-2004. All information I have is from this website: http://masonlocasi.blogspot.com/2015/04/yukselis-muhterem-locas.html, which I translated with Google Translate.

Can somebody tell me more about this badge? When was it introduced, who worn it, how many are there produced, did it have a particular function, etc?


and the backside:


Thanking you in advance for the information!

    • 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.
