Look Back – Unlisted Neckerchief Lodge 417 Ganeodiyo ?

Ten years ago in December 2005, we were talking about a newly discovered issue from Ganeodiyo Lodge #417.

This is a bleg for information regarding what is apparently an unlisted Neckerchief from Lodge #417 Ganeodiyo. The neckerchief is similar in design to the N1.5 but rather than having “61” in red, this one has “59” in red at the bottom of the neckerchief.

The N1.5 is dated “61” in 1961 the 2H Conclave was held at Crumhorn Mountain Scout Reservation which is the Council Camp of Onteroraus Lodge 402. Therefore the N1.5 would either be a NOAC Contingent Neckerchief (NOAC held in 1961) or and Area Conclave Contingent Neckerchief.

Since there was no NOAC in 1959 my best guess is both the 1961 and the 1959 neckerchiefs are Lodge Contingent Neckerchiefs to the 2H conclaves.

As you can see, the neckerchief is white with 2 red arrows, a red Area II-H and 59.

Matt Crance had later identified it as a Lodge #417 Contingent Neckerchief to the 1959 Area 2-H conclave.

Here is the 417 N1.5 Neckerchief.
