Grand Prior of Germany, HE. Fra. Heiko Bels, the Grand Cross Fra. Thomas Block, the Knight Fra. Yves Senden, the
Postulant Fra. Matthias Herber and the Observer Sor. Anja Glissmann, to the invitation from the Chevaliers de France.
Fra. Robert was also accompanied by 2 Knights of Honor Ordinis Balliolensis. The Prior, Prof. Dr. Fra. Reinhard Latza and the Knight
Grand Cross, HE. Fra. Georges Cattelain.
The Knight Fra. Jean-Pol Hanard, and spouse Christine, joined the Bels's lineage delegation as well.
We have no pictures of the ceremony.
These should arrive shortly.
The Magisterial sword is that of the late Mgr. Baron Fra. André Louis Saumier d'Albis, of whom our Mgr. Fra. Roland is the noble heir. Fra. André
was appointed Chevalier d'Honneur Ordinis Balliolensis in Kortrijk (Flanders) in 1995, by Fra. Robert Adelsohn Bels, with SE. Ignace Bailleul (former Ambassador of
the Order) as witness.
