United Service Lodge, No. 1428.—On Friday evening, 13th inst., at the regular meeting of this Lodge, held at the Masonic Hall, Highbury Street, Portsmouth, an interesting presentation was made, in the presence of a large number of Past Masters and members. The recipient was Bro. T. Mares, and the testimonial consisted of a Treasurer's massive gold jewel, with the following inscription on its back:—“Presented to Bro. T. Mares, by the members of the United Service Lodge, No. 1428, as a token of their fraternal regard for his valuable services as Treasurer for the past seven years. August, 1880.” The jewel, which was manufactured by Messrs. H. M. Emanuel and Sons, jewellers and silversmiths to the Queen, Ordnance Row, Portsea, is of eighteen carat gold, and has flags on each side, while at its lower part are two cross guns, with shot and wreath, in the centre being a garter of blue enamel, on which are two cross anchors, and the brooch bears upon it the number of the Lodge. The presentation, which was made by the W.M. of the Lodge, Bro. G. R. Strick, was suitably acknowledged by the recipient.
