It's not a military medal, but seems to relate to some kind of civilian fellowship, or fraternity. Such organisations were popular at that time when the culture was very patriarchal in comparison with today.

If you can take the time to type out what is written on the back of the medal, as it is not easy to read from your scan, then it might be possible to help you further.

simpson, the word Lodge perhaps suggests a Masonic Lodge.

My knowledge of Masonic Lodges is limited to India. The FIBIS Fibiwiki had a page "Masonic Lodges" http://wiki.fibis.org/index.php/Masonic_Lodges

The above inscription certainly doesn't sound Indian, (? Egyptian), but the Fibiwiki page has a link to the The Library and Museum of Freemasonry (United Grand Lodge of England) who possibly may be able to advise you. http://www.freemasonry.london.museum

There were also Freemasons affiliated to Scotland, rather than England.

Was your man in the British Army? In India the Lodges appear to have been established by, and had subsequently had large numbers of officers and men from the Army. You may be able to trace him through Army records.

I've done a little research into masonic medals for my own family history, my guess would be an award for a long period of temperence, (i.e. no alcohol) based on the following:

ALLIANCE JABEZ INWARDS - Jabez Inwards was a great advocate of the temperence movement, presumably the 'alliance' is a temperence group based on his teachings.

Lodge 15 - this is the Kent Lodge (as far as I am aware)

U.J.O.T.A.S.P - United Junior Order of the Totally Abstinent Sons of the Phoenix

PRESENTED TO P.C.N.B..RO.J LAMEY - Presented to Past Chief Noble, Brother J Lamey

AS MARK OF RESPECT OCT29TH 1912 - date of presentation

Hope that helps

Dixie

Anyone who wants to learn more about Jabez Inwards there is an interesting article here:

Absolutely brilliant stuff Dixie...you have absolutely cracked it! Very interesting too. I did not know about that connection between temperance and the Masonic Lodges.
