Additional Information – This was a bit of a mystery until recently. It is in fact the jewel of the Order of the Secret Monitor or to give it its full title “The Order of the Secret Monitor, or Brotherhood of David and Jonathan, in the British Isles and its Districts and Conclaves Overseas”. This is one of a number of organisations within Masonry.
