       It was a VERY special and emotional Meeting for Gary, as the initiation of his son was also Gary’s 19th
       Anniversary of becoming a Freemason and certainly one of his proudest Masonic moments to date.
       Gary has always had a great interest in all Vintage or Antique items that have a connection with English
       Freemasonry, with this in mind he thought it would be great for Harry (his son) to own this Lewis Jewel,
       and, wear it with pride, Gary commented “this is a Footprint of our Family’s Masonic History”.
       The names on the Jewel are as follows;
       Bro. Richard Robert Robbins
       Initiated into the Lodge of Light 23rd of November 1962.
       Encouraged into Freemasonry by his employers, a Funeral Director’s by the name of Hayes & English.  Lewis Jewel - 5 Generations
       Sadly, Gary’s grandfather died from a heart attack, just before
       the Meeting he was due to be installed in to the Chair as
                                                               Band on the Runhe Run

       Second on the Jewel is Gary’s Uncle,
       W.Bro David Richard Robbins
       The first Lewis of the Family, a retired Police Officer and very   Ladies Nights
       keen Mason who went on to achieve Grand Rank, and also   Disco

       to be recorded on the Lewis Jewel. Sadly, over the years Ian’s
       work and Family have kept him far too busy for his interest in          5 piece band
       Freemasonry to flourish.
       Sadly, Ian lost his wife Joanne Miller in the early part of this         ideal for all
       year and of course is missed by all the family, but he has since
       shown a rejuvenated interest in Freemasonry.                         types of functions
