9 JUNE 2023
Our most recent Investiture was at Brecon Cathedral on Friday 9 June 2023
In addition to the Investitures of new members we were presented with a Processional Cross which had been made for us by our Membership Secretary who is also a master craftsman in both wood and metal. The cross was inspired by a stained glass window on the south side of the Lady Chapel at Hereford Cathedral which depicts Jesus carrying a green cross:

Remembering the late Chevalier Richard
The stand displayed Richard's photograph taken at his last appearance on duty at our Investiture in October 2021 at Hereford Cathedral, with the Grand Master's brevet
appointing Richard to the rank of Knight Grand Cross.
Alongside is an empty sword scabbard to symbolise the conclusion of this Knight's pilgrimage.
The knights are dust,
Their swords are rust.
They're with the Lord
