At a special meeting of the United Grand Lodge in June 1919, the Grand Master, the Duke of Connaught, expressed a wish that a memorial be established to commemorate those Brehtren who had made the supreme sacrifice in the Great War, (1914-1918).
It was agreed that this memorial should be a building of a central home for Freemasonry on a site selected in London.
The Masonic Million Memorial Fund was launched in September that year and Brehtren at home and overseas were invited to contribute to raise the £1m needed to finance the work. Contributions from individuals and Lodges were recongnised by the reward of a commemorative Hall Stone Jewel.
The wearing of the Jewel by the Master of a Lodge fulfils a double purpose.
It provides visable evidence that the Lodge has faithfully and conscientiously discharged its obligations to the Fraternity;
It should ever provide the inspiration to every Brother to put service before self.
