The Lodge has two patterns of Past Masters’ jewels.

The first or 1865 pattern is best illustrated by this example which belonged to Sgt Maj Frederick Abbott which he left it to the Museum of Freemasonry:

The ribbon is the standard pale blue familiar to all Freemasons. The jewel comprises a “Set square in gold coloured metal, with foliage designs, and with the 47th proposition of Euclid attached below. They are set on a disc of light blue glass, encased by a band of matt gold coloured metal with text in polished relief reading ‘VICTORIA RIFLES LODGE / 822’, within polished and corded rope trims. The whole is framed within a gold coloured metal wreath of wheat and acacia, at the bottom of which is a banner with text infilled with light blue enamel reading ‘VIS / UNITA / FORTIOR’. Surmounting the device are crossed rifles on a five pointed Pythagorean star.” (with thanks to the Museum of Freemasonry)

The second pattern is somewhat newer, and uses a representation of the Regimental Colours surrounded by a Garter, with a Past Masters’ emblem appended to a skull and crossed bones:

Neither jewel pattern is currently in use.
