Presentation of The Scout Lodge Founders Jewel
to The Kindred Lodges Association
At our March 2006 meeting, W.Bro John Winston, Worshipful Master for 2005/06 presented to the Chairman of the Kindred Lodges Association (KLA), W.Bro S.G. our first, and sadly departed, Worshipful Masters Founders Jewel.
The Family of the Late W.Bro Robin Salter had kindly given permission for the Jewel, which had been suitably engraved, to be presented to the KLA by The Scout Lodge. It will eventually be displayed alongside Jewels from Sister Lodges of the KLA at the new Visitors Centre of Gilwell Park, the international training and camping centre of the Scout Association.
Until the KLA Jewels are permanently housed at Gilwell Park, they are residing in a display case that is 'touring' KLA festivals and meetings.
The Jewel presentation on March 9th 2006 occured on the 1st Anniversary of the passing to the Grand Lodge Above of our Founding Master and was we hope a suitable memorial to a great and sadly missed Brother Mason and Brother Scout.
