Mark Watson-Gandy is a Knight of Malta, a Knight of St. Gregory the Great and a Knight of the Constantinian Order of St George. He is the Baron of Myrton for which he made me his 'Baron Baillie.' We have been friends since the early pilgrimages to Lourdes and we always enjoy one another's company.

Philip Mercer of Hillslap is a Knight of Malta who I met at a luncheon at Traquhair House. We quickly realised we had common interests which formed the basis of our friendship and his generous hospitality at Hillslap has been a delight and pleasure.
