The Knights of Malta have just chosen another Englishman to succeed Fra. Andrew Bertie as Grand Master.
As I\’ve said before, Bertie was at Worth when I ws in the prep school there. Used to walk down to breakfast from his lodgings past the dorms, singing th Lord\’s Prayer in Arabic: always, but always, five minutes before the bell went. A wake up call if you like.
So that\’s two in a row from Ampleforth, one of them also had that connection to Worth.
Hmm, Downside next time around?
