    Second Investiture of the Order of St. Stanislas
    Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna, Austria

    You Tube of the Austrian Investiture, September 19, 2015 [submitted on September 29th, 2015

    Gala Dinner 2015

    Chapter of the Grand Cross of the Order of Merit with Crowns Stanislaus Grand Master of the Order of St.. Stanislaus Julius Nowina-Sokolnicki decree No.3 / 2008 dated 09.04.2008 has established the Grand Cross of Merit with Crowns OSS and the Grand Jury appointed to the management, evaluation and award of decorations.

    The award may be granted only to highly regarded people who have contributed to the defense of Polish Order of St. Stanislaus and defending the good Polish name in the world.

    Point 1 of the Decree:


    Powers of the Grand Chapter of its powers under Decree No.3 / 2008 G.M. JNS can not be taken over by another organization and law, as this Copyright was only entitled to only chev. Stanislaus Stawowiak as originator, author and founder of the Grand Cross of Merit with Crowns.

    Violations of these rights and attempt a hostile takeover of the Grand Cross Merit with Crowns of OSS is highly reprehensible, and shows a lack of respect for the decision made by our late Grand Master JNS. Mutual respect and honor IS NEEDED FOR reconciling, on ideological grounds,to reactivated the Order of Saint Stanislaus.

    Those who so act do not have the moral right to call themselves Knights of the Order. It should be emphasized that G.M. JNS in 2009, rejected the candidacy of chev. Krol to awards him with this award, because it does not meet the criteria in item 1 of the Decree of dn.4.08.2008 year.
    It should be mentioned that Chev. Mandryga of KOSS BM your emails to members KOSS Bm attempts to discredit the activities of the Chapter appointed by GM JNS and still operating. br> More organizes dn.10-11.10.2015 investiture on which many people have been decorated with the honors. We are members of the sole and legitimate Jury Grand Cross of Merit with Crowns do not recognize the Chapter appointed by chev. Krol and its decisions, activities and awarding badges are illegal.

  • December Investiture:

    Ladies, Gentlemen, fellow Dames and Knights:

    These pics were taken by Mrs. Teru Castro. Mrs. Castro who in real life is a very distinguished architect is also the wife of Emir Pablo Musi who was invested by Grand Master Wilk.

    Grand Master Wilk also "invested" as a page of "Our Order" Miss Tere Musi , Miss Musi was indescribably extatic.

    During the Investment Ceremony I resigned as Mexico's Grand Prior and according to Grand Master's Wilk wishes, Pablo L. Lorant was named to the position and he was also awarded our Grand Cross.

    Also invested were Mrs. Alma Lastra, Mr. Armando Giner, Mr. Gerardo De La Peza and Mr. Lucasz Pietrak, whose grandfather who also attended the ceremony is the Grand Prior of Poland. A promotion Medal was bestowed upon Mr. Antonio Pozzi, Chancellor of the order in Mexico and The Gold Service Medal was granted to Dame Maria Teresa Lorant, who also happens to be the mother of the new Grand Prior and the legal wife of The Regent. Immediately after The Ceremony one hundred and fifty wool blanket were distributed amongst the destitute and one hundred and fifty more shall be handed out early in January.

    Please do not fail to notice the glasses of very fine Tequila that was imbibed in industrial quantities and please do not confuse the "other pictures" that are included which show a non related ceremony of the Order of Saint Hubertus presided by Archduke Istvan of Habsburg Lorraine and Salm Salm.

    With warmest personal regards to you all and very best wishes.

    Tomasz Ludwik Lorant. GCCStS.

  • November 7, 2014...R.I.P. Richard Vaughn Rowland. Richard Vaughan Rowlands passed away yesterday morning : November 7, 2014; in Tallinn, Estonia. Good bye my friend...and condolences to his family and friends.

    It will be the little things
    that you will remember,
    the quiet moments,
    the smiles, the laughter.
    And although it may seem
    hard right now,
    it will be the memories
    of these little things
    that help to push
    away the pain

    and bring the smiles
    back again.

    I think this is as Richard would like it.
    Richard always made me smile. R.I.P. Richard.
