Next month's proceedings will be the final
issue disseminated by Lord Locksley. As of 31 August, his duties
as Lord Laurel will be taken by Boncour, subject to the confirmation
by the Board. The files of the college will be delivered to Boncour
be Denis Crus. of the Titans between August 1 and August 15, during
Denis' visit to the West.
The College of Arms does herewith recognize
the reestablishment of the "Crusadens", who are
sworn to "stand under Arms at the Sepulcher of Jesus of Nazareth,
in Jerusalem, for a period not less than 24 hours continuous",
and finds no objection to their bearing "Argent, a Latin
Cross throughout gules" as a badge. This is sufficiently
differenced from extant Orders of Knighthood to warrant it's use.
