Can you help identify the symbols on this neckerchief?

Melanie Earley Reporter from Western Leader

Kia ora neighbours, a tattered neckerchief discovered inside a 153-year-old shipwreck on Muriwai beach has been restored by heritage specialists. It was found the neckerchief was made of pure silk and featured detailed images which appeared to relate to the Freemasons organisation. The Daring rescue group are now calling for anyone who may know the background of the images and what they mean. Images can be found within the story.

refugees

Maria from Kelston

I see it has been announced today that we will be able to bring in 100 refugees every six weeks from July. No offence to the refugees but we can't even look after our own people at the moment. Will they be set up in housing when we are paying so much for emergency housing ,given benefits etc. I feel this has to stop as nz can't afford it. The world has changed as we know it and we can't afford this extra burden.

Looking for Dutch Interpreter

Yvonne from Blockhouse Bay

Hello everyone, I'm hoping to find a person who can read Dutch and help me interpret some old family documents please. I am exploring my father's Dutch colonial family history and have records of their immigration from Indonesia to New Zealand pre-1950. However, I am unable to read Dutch and would love to gain a bit of understanding of what each document is about. I don't need everything interpreted but just an overview of what each is about would be a wonderful start.
If you can help me, please contact Eve on 021 0275 2766. Many thanks in advance.
