Senior (Wales) Staff Meetings : 7-10 September 2023
The Grand Prior of All Britain was in Wales for a few days carrying out a "Visitation" (mainly with Chaplains) to plan some of our activities in the coming twelve months.
The Grand Prior also met some members of our Guild of St Thomas Cantilupe.
He was accompanied by the Warden of the Guild.
During the course of the visit the Grand Prior went to the Parish Church of St Michael & All Angels in Llantarnam and paid his respects at the grave of John Fielding VC - one of the heroes of the Defence of Rorke's Drift in January 1879 during the Zulu War. He also inspected the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's headstone of local man, Guardsman Penry Morgan, which one of our members has been given permission to care for.
