There is an interesting story behind this ceremony. The King of the West, Steingrim (Stallari) (28 Apr. XIII/1979 - 25 Aug. XIV/1979) could not attend this event, and so had delegated the task of knighting Harrold to the Prince of An Tir, Manfred. However Manfred was a Master-of-Arms and as "Only a Knight can make a Knight", could not perform the actual dubbing. So Sir Edward (long white tunic and slouch hat) held the sword for that portion of the ceremony.
