Knight Grand Cross Of The Order Of The Bath
A knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the monarch or country, especially in a military capacity. Historically, in Europe, knighthood was conferred upon mounted warriors.[1] During the High Middle Ages, knighthood was considered a class of lower nobility. By the Late Middle Ages, the rank had become associated with the ideals of chivalry, a code of conduct for the perfect courtly Christian warrior. Often, a knight was a vassal who served as a fighter for a lord, with payment in the form of land holdings.[2] The lords trusted the knights, who were skilled in battle on horseback. Knighthood
Knighthood
in the Middle Ages was closely linked with horsemanship (and especially the joust) from its origins in the 12th century until its final flowering as a fashion among the high nobility in the Duchy of Burgundy in the 15th century

is situated adjacent to the chapel.[2] World War II attacks[edit] On Sunday 18 June 1944 the chapel was hit again, this time by a V1 during the morning service. The explosion of the V1 collapsed the concrete roof onto the congregation, with 121 killed and 141 injured persons (military and civilians). Using the memorials from the old chapel as foundations,[1] in the 1960s it was rebuilt in a modern style. In 1970 it was given Grade II* listed status.[3] References[edit]^ a b Bromley & Bromley 2015, p. 585. ^ "The Queen leads remembrance events in London". BBC News Online. 6 November 2014
