4. I have now reported the jewel’s return to the Lodge and have been asked t thank you very much indeed for having traced its origin and for returning it to us. We haven’t yet decided what to do with it – one suggestion being that it be passed down and worn from IPM to IPM during his year.

I am now waiting for the Treasurer to let me have a cheque to send to you as a donation which I hope to be able to do in the next few days.

I hope that my father’s regalia will be able to be passed on and that it will raise some money to go to your Masonic Charity

My Father, George, Joined the Oliver Goldsmith Lodge and was a Mason for many years. He so enjoyed the time that he was involved with his masonic life and I am sure that he would feel very pleased to know that even after his death, he was still helping a Masonic Charity. Thank you for all your help      Pam

13 Dear Colin Ring

Thank you for your email, which Mt Ricky has forwarded.

Mr G Tocher was indeed a Founder Member of The Lodge Singapore No 7178, and the Jewel referred to would be his Founder Member Breast Jewel.

The Lodge Singapore No 7178 EC was consecrated in 1952, which is why the Year appears. A photograph of one of the Founder Member Breast Jewel is attached for your reference. I believe that piece with you should be similar.

As it would indeed be an important part of The Lodge’s History which we would preserve, I would be most pleased and obliged to receive it ion behalf of my Lodge members.

Please send it to my Office Address at 111 North Bridge Road #08-12 Peninsula Plaza Singapore 179098.

On behalf of all the Members of The Lodge Singapore  No 7178 EC. I extend our deepest gratitude for its recovery.

With our very best  regards & many thanks.

Sincerely & fraternally

Ivan CS Lee

Secretary, The Lodge Singapore No 7178

14 I have a while ago received the package, which contains the​​

subject Founder Jewel, which I

​on my Lodge’s behalf ​

accept with deep gratitude & appreciation.

I shall pass your accompanying letter to the Lodge Committee for their reference.

Best regards.

Sincerely & fraternally

15. Bro Bill Dowley

On behalf of Athlon Lodge 4674, I would like to thank you for the safe return of our Past Master’s collar jewel, dating from 1960/61, and I am pleased to advise you that one of our Brethren was able find reference to Bro. AA Hanley (to whom it was originally issued), in his own personal Lodge records.

I would also like to thank you for the time and trouble you took in meticulously packaging it up to ensure its delivery be effected in perfect order.

Our treasurer will be making a donation to the Metropolitan Masonic Charity, by way of Bro. Darrel Palmer, as requested.

The service you provide is invaluable, as I believe that it is really important that these historical items are in the possession of their originators, wherever possible.

Bro Ray Baldwin

16. Dear Bill.

The purpose of this e mail is to thank you and your team for returning our lost Grand Chaplain collar jewel. in 2014 Tylney Lodge ,who had returned their warrant, presented us with their Grand Chaplain Jewel as ours was no where to be found. Having our original jewel returned to its rightful home and all the effort and work required in doing so is greatly appreciated by the brethren.

In recognition of your efforts and the Pre Loved Regalia Team the Lodge would like to make a donation of £50 to the Metropolitan Masonic Charity. This donation was approved by the brethren at our Lodge meeting on 21st September and our Treasurer will be making this donation from our Charity Chest with Met Grand Lodge referencing the Pre Loved Regalis Team.

Once again thank you from the brethren of Coborn Lodge for the work you and your team are doing.
