    Hopefully i have posted a picture of a medallion, i first thought it was of jewish origin but with a name of McDowell and a town of Belfast, i would think this is a Masons medallion, sister found it when she purchased her house

    The wording on the front of medallion says
    Presented to Fx Comp Geo L McDowell by officers & members of James Chambers R.A.C 318: 1928
    Rear of medallion says
    Talia-S1-Jungere-Possis-Sit-Tibi-Scire
    The confusing thing it is housed in a pouch which states,
    14 High St
    68 Ann St
    Belfast
    R M McDOWELL & Co
    Watchmaker
    Jewellers
    Silversmith & Opticians
    Any words as to what and why it commemerates

    • Si talia jungere possis sit tibi scire satis - "If thou canst comprehend these things, thou knowest enough"

    This is certainly a masonic latin motto so you are right there.



    Here ya go:
    The Jewel of the Order, the wearing of which is not obligatory, is worn on the breast. The three Principal Officers of, and all Companions who have filled any of these offices in any Subordinate Chapter, shall wear them pendant from scarlet ribbons; all other Companions shall wear them pendant from white ribbons.
    Jewel of a Past King




    Not exactly the same but pretty close

    Yep, definately an Irish masons medal. I found this reference to James Chambers Lodge in Belfast.

    Eight Lodges celebrate their Centenary this year including Emerald Lodge No 49 Greystones; James Chambers Lodge No 318 Crumlin Road, Belfast; St Patrick’s Lodge No 319 Mumbai, India; Lodge of St John No 330 Ballymoney; Fitzgibbon Lodge No 331 Dublin; Groomsport Lodge No 337; Ruby Lodge Dublin. Corinthian Lodge No 340 Arthur Square makes up the balance of Centenary Lodges this year.
    At a guess, the two McDowell references are coincidence due to it being a common name (name of recipient and maker)

    mandc, great reply, i gather from reading that there is nothing special about this medallion, appears if you are a member then you would have a medallion of some sort!. Independence was granted in 1922 so i would think that in 1928 things still would have been a little testy in the Catholic/protestant island
