Latest InvestitureS

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:

We were privileged to visit this beautiful Norman Church where one of our Chaplains is currently based as part of his training for ordination in the Church in Wales (Anglican).  Two new members were also Invested on this occasion and we are delighted to have them join us to complete three Investitures in the last twelve months, in spite of the Covid-19 restrictions.

OSMTJ - Newport 21 - Remembering Chevalier Richard

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
We trust.
