Mysterious initials

O.P.S. & D.S.

These initials appear on a silver snuff box presented to “Bro A. Breckles by members of the above as a token of esteem on his leaving for Canada April 1903”

We have been researching the initials but have not been able to come up with the words. We’ve tried Order and Oddfellows for the O, nothing at all seems to work for the P, and Society for the S. We think that D.S. may mean Druid Society, but, of course, it could have many meanings.

If you know for what those letters stand, please contact us – archives@newcastle.edu.au, phone: 02 4921 5354.
