I am a member of Aughnahoory LOL no 343b Kilkeel Ulster & we are considering commissioning a new banner featuring Wor Bro Robert Hill Hanna VC who was once a member of our lodge. I tried editing his Wikipedia entry I tried editing his entry on Wikipedia and am having some success with this.

They will allow my entry that he was an Orangeman belonging to Canadian LOL no 2226 if I can provide what they term a citation which those browsing the site may click on to find proof of this fact.

Can you suggest where I can find what they require??

I really like what this order represents, as it relates to me and my beliefs as a Christian. I want to join when I'm ready. I'm from Edmonton, AB.

Hello:

I am an historian of the Royal Canadian Navy -- currently focusing my efforts on its activities during the Great War, (1914-18).

In this regard, I am researching the life and service career of Charles Martin. My interest in Charles stems, in the first part, from the fact that he was one of the few members of the fledgling Royal Canadian Navy to be commissioned from the ranks during the First World War. This was a relatively rare occurrence, and I am currently writing a research paper on this practice. Charles Martin?s service career and life will feature prominently in this endeavour.

I am writing to ask for your assistance, since, as part of my research, I have discovered that Charles Martin was a Worshipful Master of LOL 1672 Boyne Lodge, Richmond B.C. Regrettably I have not been able to ascertain exactly when, but he lived in British Columbia between 1904 and his death in 1966.

Is there an Orange Order Archive which could be consulted to learn more about Charles' involvement in the Orange Order? Would there be any photos of him -- given his position as Worshipful Master?

Any leads or other assistance greatly appreciated.

Cheers.
