"The event (Gregory & Vivian Investiture 1975) was held outdoors, at night, in a courtyard. In an effort to add more "pomp and circumstance," Lord Ioannes Leckie, who was very devoted to the study of pre-16th century protocol and ritual, had assembled an entourage to escort Their Highnesses by torchlight. Unfortunately, the torches were, as I recall, covered orange juice cans placed atop long poles and filled with lighter fluid, which presented something of a fire hazard. It was either then-Lord Cameron of Caladoon, attired in powder blue with matching tights (but no shoes), or then-Mistress Bevin Fraser of Stirling (or maybe both together) who managed to talk them out of actually LIGHTING the "torches." – Natalya de Foix

He was the first Dance-Master I knew, and I first met him when he came out to Dreiburgen to teach dance. He was energetic, patient and made sure everyone had a good time. He did like the fire bransle. If I recall, he divined Caid's Horoscope at Caid's First Coronation Festival 1978 in period style. ~ Eadwynne of Runedun
