Digital Archive - Membership Card for the Ewias Harold Lodge of Oddfellows
1916 - 1917
The Oddfellows was a Friendly Society intended to provide help to members when they needed it at a time when there was no welfare state or National Health Service. The local Lodge was part of a national non-profit mutual organisation owned by their members where all income was passed back to the members in the form of services and benefits.
