    Knighthood photos as promised

    Dear Friends

    What an experience; what an honour. This ceremony of investiture of the Sovereign Order of St John( Knights of Malta) has been performed continuously for 962 years! Mine took place in a 16th century palace in Malta. The Knights of St John are the oldest, most prestigious order of chivalry in the world, approximately 870 years older than the excellent British Knighthood( O.B.E.)

    Doxa Sea Hunter worn!(first time in an investiture ceremony?)

    KIndest regards

    So how does one become a Knight of Malta? I'm not looking to join, I'm just looking to find out the process that you took to be chosen as one.

    Re: Knighthood photos as promised

    I received my knighthood because over the past 30 years I have offered a free naturopathic help line which has helped more than 30,000 people reclaim their health, many of whom were terminally ill. I've also done work with the poor and helped provide shelter for the homeless.

    You have to be nominated by a Knight of Malta and seconded by another. Then they check you out thoroughly to see if you deserve this honour.

    Thanks for asking. Kindest regards. Gary
