Graeme de Liste of Cherbourg, Award of the Scarlet Banner, 2013

On the archery range, toe by the line
there is a man of Normandy refined.
There shoots an archer from far away France;
his bow is steady, his arrows precise.
His carriage is noble, bearing so fine.
A champion he is, this Graeme de Liste.

Let it be known that We, Roak and Elizabeth, King and Queen of the Lupine Lands of Ealdormere, do wish to recognize the skill in archery exhibited by Graeme de Liste ofCherbourg in lands home and abroad, most specifically for being one of Ealdormere’s archery champions at Pennsic in the Debated Lands. So do we commend him and bestow upon him Our Award of the Scarlet Banner and the right to bear the badge of the award. Done while sitting Our thrones in Our [hosting group] at [event] this [day] day of [month], anno societatus [year], in testimony whereof We have set Our hands and seal.



By THLaird Colyne Stewart. Based on the Chanson de Roland, 12th century.
