Founders Jewel

Founders Jewel Rediscovered

When Certa Cito Lodge 8925 was consecrated in 1980, a tradition was upheld to commemorate the event with medals or "jewels" for its founding members. Over time, some of these jewels were believed to have been lost, leaving gaps in the historical record of our lodge's early days.

However, in a remarkable turn of events, one of these elusive jewels has been rediscovered, thanks to the efforts of Worshipful Brother Carl Cupper of Euston Lodge. W/Bro Cupper's diligent search led him to an unexpected find on eBay, where the long-lost jewel of Certa Cito Lodge surfaced for sale.

Recognising the significance of this historic artefact, W/Bro Cupper swiftly acquired the jewel and ensured its safe return to Certa Cito Lodge. This act of dedication and preservation has not only restored a piece of our lodge's heritage but also enriched our understanding of our roots.

The rediscovered jewel will undergo careful restoration before being mounted in a frame. Following a brief loan spell at the Royal Signals Museum, it will find its permanent place of honor on display at every lodge meeting.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Worshipful Brother Carl Cupper for his unwavering commitment to preserving our history and heritage.

Stay tuned for updates on the restoration process and the jewel's journey back to Certa Cito Lodge.

Formation of the Lodge

Earlier attempts to form a Corps lodge had been unsuccessful

Proposals made by senior Freemasons to the Corps Committee, before and after the Second World War, for recognition of such a lodge had not received support. However, in 1977, R W Bro Sir James Stubbs, Grand Secretary of the United Grand Lodge of England, who had served in the Corps during the war, decided to try once more and thankfully was successful. 

The matter of agreeing a name and cipher for the Lodge caused some debate. The use of the title ‘Royal Signals’ was found to require Home Office Approval. Likewise, although 'Jimmy' could be used as a badge, the crown surmounting this well-loved symbol could not. It was, therefore decided to use the title Certa-Cito Lodge and to adopt "Jimmy" without his crown.

Lodge Consecration 

The consecration of the lodge was held on Friday 30th May 1980, in No 10 Temple, at Freemasons' hall, Great Queen Street, London. 

There were 68 founders of the lodge of which 65 members were present for the consecration of Certa Cito lodge and following a successful ceremony and meeting, the brethren of the lodge dined at the the Connaught Rooms,  accompanied by their guests.
