About this object

This Ancient Order of Foresters medal was awarded to Sister Cath Stevenson on December 10, 1983.

The Court Royal Oak, No. 6532, of Ancient Order of Foresters' Lodge provided payments to members who were off work because of illness or accidents and gave assistance for funeral costs. In 1931, together with the Wyndham Odd Fellows Lodge, the Foresters established the United Friendly Society Dispensary.

The Lodge went into recess during World War Two, and it wasn't reinstated until 1964. The lodge was still going into the 1990s, with the Gore Lodge amalgamating into the Wyndham one in 1997.
