THE ORDER OF THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE OF KING ARTHUR
Uncle Roly, the Knight Seneschal.
Founded in 1927 as an offshoot of an order with it's roots in the Hundred Years War the 'Order' is Uncle Roly's passion and he holds the position of Knight Seneschal.
It is a true chivalric order and clings to the premise of service before self and defending those who cannot defend themselves as well as preserving the love of Arthur's legends and the very ideal virtues of fellowship.
The Order, based at King Arthur's Great Halls in Tintagel, numbers hundreds of members with a world-wide spread.
With dragons being a little thin on the ground the Order now concentrates on continuing the ideals of chivalry and courtly virtue whilst raising money for it's chosen charity the Children's Hospice South West.
The Great Halls are, indeed, spiritual home of the Order, as the building was constructed as a home for the Order by it's founder Frederick Glassock.
The annual dinner, in June, is the hi-light of the Order's year and attracts it's members from all over the world to attend in the spirit of fellowship with ladies holding complete parity with it's male members. It is at this annual dinner that the Order holds its investitures of new members. All of them embracing the tenets of the Order and its belief in the knightly virtues.
The legends of King Arthur and his knights have enthralled Uncle Roly since his childhood and it was just this subject in which he specialized when lecturing literally all over the world.
The sword in the stone, timeless image of the Arthurian legend.
