Half Moon Lodge #28 Dark Blue Service Flap S40b

I had heard several years ago that Half Moon Lodge #28 had issued a service flap. The design is the same as their standard S13 but with a Blue Border. I had reserved an issue number for it, but only recently obtained an image. I have since found out there is a second version with a dark blue border and lettering. I’m calling the Blue the S40a and the DBL the S40b

Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Beadwork

Not a patch this time, but some nice beadwork fro a Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Brother sent along by Gene Berman.

Not sure the era or when it was used, but I thought I would share it.

Here is one side:

Discovery – Half Moon Lodge #28 Pink Arrow Flap F1c

Another variation from Half Moon Lodge #28, I’ve heard of this several times over the years and had one in my hands a few years back, but the price was not right. This is another variation of the F1, but with a pink arrow rather than red. The Pink color is the same on the front and the reverse, so it is not faded from the sun, nor are the other colors faded. Contacts in the lodge have said a number due exist in local collections dating back to the 1960’s.
