The Order of the Secret Monitor
Brotherhood of David and Jonathan in the British Isles and its Districts and Conclaves Overseas
The Order is based on the remarkable friendship between David and Jonathan.
For a time the Order came under the aegis of the Grand Council of the Allied Masonic Degrees,
but in 1931 some fresh understandings were reached and the Grand Council of the Order of the
Secret Monitor was officially recognised.
The Order is administered from Mark Masons Hall
Candidates have to be Master Masons of good standing. The regalia is simple, consisting of a
Breast Jewel suspended from a ribbon in the colours of the Order, purple and orange
(See the Regalia Page.) The two colours of the ribbon are reversed for the second degree.
The jewel has two triangles interlaced with three arrows and charged with the letters D and J.
