Sir Claud William Jacob (1863–1948) was an officer in the British Army who served in India and modern day Pakistan for 30 years before serving in the First World War and rising to the rank of Field Marshal. He was also an active Freemason, and in 1928 served as Senior Grand Warden, a senior position in the United Grand Lodge of England, the governing body of Freemasonry in England and Wales. In this portrait he is wearing the regalia of that office, whose emblem is a level, along with various Masonic medals or jewels.
