Victoria Bond as Andromeda

In August of 2013 I compared Irene Easton to Andromeda and the un-named Pricess that is sacrificed to the Dragon in the legends of Saint George. I got an e-mail from Tomas Ensley who knew Rena sense elementary school. They kissed in a car after a date, and Rena want no more of his kisses.

For hundreds of year artist and sculptures have used living models to render Greek and Roman gods. In 1971, Rena sent a photo of her profile in order to do a painting of her as a un-named goddess. My sister saw a photograph of this painting and took up art – to become world famous! Rena is Rosamond’s muse. She beheld her minutes after WE rescued by the sea.

Tomas Ensley is a registered sex offender. I suspect he read my posts where I find Rena, and she sends me a long letter. I suspect he was already in touch with her, and kept this a secret, because, he did not want to share his secret fantasies about her. “He who accuses – excuses!” It would not take much to depict me as some kind of kidnapper. The name of my auto-biography is;

“There is no information about Rena on the site.  She’s kept a low profile and we assume she has her reasons.  We all respect that.  We knew her as a lovely, sweet and troubled young woman.  Your words have romanticized her beyond recognition.  I’m happy that I knew her, but Rena was no goddess.  I think she would have laughed to hear you call her that.  There are no goddesses after all.  Only those that we choose to place on a pedestal.  She is just another soul on a wild trip through the Universe, just like the rest of us.  It is likely that she will hear of your inquiries in time.  When that happens, it is her choice whether to respond.  Please allow her that.  I want your promise on this.  Understand, it took me no more than twenty minutes of searching to locate your name and to make contact with you.  Surely Rena would have no trouble doing the same, if it was her desire.

A team is deployed to recover a military satellite which has returned to Earth, but contact is lost abruptly. Aerial surveillance reveals that everyone in Piedmont, Arizona, the town closest to where the satellite landed, is apparently dead. The duty officer of the base tasked with retrieving the satellite suspects that it returned with an extraterrestrial contaminant and recommends activating “Wildfire”, a protocol for a government-sponsored team of scientists intended to contain threats of this nature.

The Wildfire team, led by Dr. Jeremy Stone, believes the satellite—intentionally designed to capture upper-atmosphere microorganisms for bio-weapon exploitation—returned with a deadly microorganism that kills through nearly instantaneous blood clotting. Upon investigating Piedmont, the team discovers that the townspeople either died in mid-stride or went “quietly nuts” and committed bizarre suicides. Two survivors—the sick, Sterno-addicted, geriatric Peter Jackson and the constantly bawling infant Jamie Ritter—are biological opposites who somehow survived the organism.”

She has never been to the headquarter of BAD. She had debriefed herself on the train ride. She felt she was prepared for what awaited her. What she was not prepared for was the oil of abeautiful woman that was hung above Clive’s desk. She went right to it, and did not see Mr. Rougemont’s outstretched hand.

Who is this. She……looks like me!”

She should look like you. She is your great grandmother.”

Victoria felt a rush of blood to her head and neck. She has taken blow to her solar plexus. And now………….her third eye!

It’s time for you to know who you are! Come here. Sit down. Here is your grandfather. Clive clicked play on his computer. “Here is your grandfather.”

Marine Society to merge with Sea Cadets

By David Osler

June 03 2004 Lloyds List

THE Marine Society is to lose its independence and merge with the Royal
Navy-controlled Sea Cadets, after being forced to discontinue its training
ship activities for financial reasons.

Both decisions – announced at the organisation’s annual meeting in London
yesterday, which was addressed by the Princess Royal – appear to reflect
financial realities determined by the continuing decline in UK seafarer
numbers.

The accounts given to attendees showed that subscription and donation
income totalled just ?43,700 ($80,320) last year.
Expenditure of training activities alone – most notably on the vessel TS
Earl of Romney – was over 10 times that figure.

But although Earl of Romney offered basic sea experience to more than 560
adults and young people last year, the 1957-built vessel is to be paid off
this year, and not replaced.

There is no immediate financial crisis, given that the organisation has
built up fixed assets of around ?8.8m in the centuries since its foundation
in 1756.

However, chairman Clive de Rougemont admitted: “Over the past year, the
council has been doing much soul-searching over the future of the society.”

It would be “problematical to say the least” to find the cash for a new
training ship, and a radical solution was needed.

Thus it had been decided to pool resources with another complimentary
charity and to merge with the Sea Cadet Association.
The new organisation will be called The Marine Society and Sea Cadets, he
said.

Practical and legal issues meant that a final timetable had yet to be drawn
up, but fusion was likely by the end of this year.
The merger will take the form of the transfer of Sea Cadet assets and
undertakings to the Marine Society.

The Queen, the society’s existing patron, will also act as patron of the
new organisation.

At yesterday’s meeting, the Princess Royal paid tribute to the work of both
the Marine Society and the Sea Vision campaign.
To the delight of trade union observers present, her speech noted that
while the government’s tonnage tax policy had strengthened the Red Ensign,
it had not boosted seafarer numbers.The Marine Society

The Marine Society was the world’s first seafarers’ charity. In 1756, at the beginning of the Seven Years’ War against France, Austria, Russia, Sweden and Saxony (and subsequently Spain and Portugal) Britain urgently needed to recruit men for the navy. Jonas Hanway (1712-1786), who had already made his mark as a traveller, Russia Company merchant, writer and philanthropist, must take the chief credit for founding the society which both contributed to the solution of that particular problem, and has continued for the next two and a half centuries to assist many thousands of young people in preparing for a career at sea.

Formation[edit source]

Plaque marking site of the foundation of The Marine Society
The Marine Society, the world’s oldest public maritime charity, was the brainchild of a group of London merchants and gentlemen, who first met at the King’s Arms Tavern, Cornhill, London on June 25, 1756 to discuss a plan to supply two or three thousand seafarers for the navy.[citation needed] Recruitment began immediately. Sponsors were sought and advertisements for volunteers appeared in newspapers and on the street:

“Notice is hereby given, that all stout lads and boys, who incline to go on board His Majesty’s Ships, with a view to learn the duty of a seaman, and are, upon examination, approved by The Marine Society, shall be handsomely clothed and provided with bedding, and their charges born down to the ports where His Majesty’s Ships lye, with all other proper encouragement.”

Ten men were duly clothed and delivered to ships of the King’s navy. In this small way began the work of The Marine Society. The main object of the charity when founded was sending unemployed or orphaned teenagers to sea as officers’ servants. The Royal Navy was estimated to need about 4,500 boys as servants during wartime. Approximately a thousand were ‘young gentlemen’ intending to be officers, and many of the remainder were supplied by the Society. As the boys were for the most part from non-seafaring families the Society probably provided a real increase of several thousand to the pool of naval recruitment. The Society also provided over ten thousand naval recruits with free clothing, which helped reduce the typhus problem.[1]

Incorporated by Act of Parliament[edit source]

The scheme really took off. By 1763, the Society had recruited over 10,000 men and boys; in 1772, such was its perceived importance in the life of the nation, it was incorporated in an Act of Parliament. Admiral Nelson became a stalwart supporter and trustee of the charity, such that by the time of the Battle of Trafalgar (1805) at least 15% of British manpower was being supplied, trained and equipped by The Marine Society. The relative professionalism of these men, the great British naval hero readily acknowledged, played a part in his victories.

Hostilities cease, Education starts[edit source]

But the end of hostilities meant that naval recruitment was no longer the nation’s first priority, although Admiral Boscawen was later to write: “No scheme for manning the navy, within my knowledge, has ever had the success as the Marine Society’s.”

Hanway now formulated plans for transferring boys to the merchant service on their discharge from naval ships and from then on, the Society was equally involved with both Royal and Merchant navies.

Early reports from commanding officers had indicated that the number of desertions might be reduced if boys equipped by the Society were given a period of training before being sent to sea.

Initially the Society hired a schoolmaster and bandmaster to teach some of the boys and in 1786 purchased a merchant ship the Beatty, which was converted to a training ship and renamed Marine Society. The Society thus became the first organisation in the world to pioneer nautical training for boys in its special school ship which was moored in the Thames between Deptford and Greenwich.

This example was followed in the nineteenth century by many other organisations in ports round the British Isles. From 1799 until 1918 The Admiralty provided a succession of training ships, the last two of which were renamed Warspite. In 1922 the Society commissioned HMS Hermione as the third Warspite. However the outbreak of the second world war forced the Society to evacuate the ship owing to the probability of air attack.

From 1756 to 1940 the Society recruited over 110,000 men and boys for the Royal Navy, the British East India Company and Merchant service. Records show that from 1756 to 1815 the charity provided some twelve percent of naval manpower, all the more valuable to the nation since each one was a volunteer.

After the Second World War[edit source]

After the Second World War, the Society concluded that there were by then sufficient facilities for sea-training provided by national authorities. It continued to provide sea-kits for many young seafarers and, where necessary, offered grants for their education, but in the 1950s the Society began to insist that cadets thus helped should have completed a good general education, obtaining a minimum of four GCE passes at O level. In this way The Marine Society pioneered what was subsequently accepted as standard practice for the entry of officers into the Merchant Navy.

Between 1940 and 1987, as the Society’s reserves increased, was not only able to help individual seafarers but also to make grants to many maritime charities. In 1981 it provided the base funds for the Marine Adventure Sailing Trust, a limited life investment trust fund, which enabled it to make further substantial grants to the Sea Cadet Corps, TS Foudroyant, Ocean Youth Club and other maritime youth charities.

In 1976 the Society amalgamated with various other maritime charities with similar aims, including the Incorporated Thames Nautical Training Trust (HMS Worcester), the Seafarers Education Service The Marine Society College of the Sea, the Sailors’ Home and Red Ensign Club, the Merchant Navy Comforts Service Trust and the British Ship Adoption Society. The merger of the Seafarers Education Service with The Marine Society at this time was hugely significant and helped to ensure the continued relevance of both operations. The SES consisted of The Marine Society College of the Sea and Seafarers Libraries, and had been inaugurated in 1919 by Albert Mansbridge who had earlier founded the Workers Educational Association. Both the College of the Sea and Seafarers Libraries continue to flourish today.

For the past 30 years,[2] the principal objectives of The Marine Society have been to facilitate and to provide practical and financial support for the education, training and well-being of all professional seafarers and to encourage young people to embark on maritime careers.

For many years The Marine Society has had strong ties with the Sea Cadet Corps, not only as benefactor and landlord to the SCA, but also by providing sea training opportunities for hundreds of sea cadets each year.

It was because of these ties plus the complementary objectives of the two charities and, more specifically, the mutual desire to introduce an element of Merchant Navy ethos to the Sea Cadet Corps, that the merger of the Sea Cadet Association with The Marine Society came about 30 November 2004. The new charity thereby created became known as The Marine Society & Sea Cadets.

As the UK’s largest non-profit maritime organisation, the Marine Society & Sea Cadets (usually abbreviated to MSSC) is the holding brand for the two distinct organisations: The Marine Society, and the Sea Cadets. It is based in a Victorian building close to the river Thames and adjacent to Lambeth Palace in central London.

The Marine Society continues as a charity involved in lifelong learning for maritime professionals.

Andromeda and the Great Art Lesson

andromena5From the moment she emerge from the darkened door at the edge of the sea, Rena Victoria gave me one great Art Lesson after another. I could barely keep up as she dipped into the Master Creator’s palette. When she told me she was afraid of the sea, I wondered if she was the embodiment of Andromeda. Poseidon punishes this most beautiful of maidens by chaining her to a rock by the sea. Surely if I were her reincarnation, I would avoid the ocean – at all costs!

Christine was terrified she would meet her death via a MONSTROUS wave! I died after falling on rocks by the sea. And here come Rena from Nebraska. She gets near the Pacific Ocean, and is in great peril. Her boyfriend is beat-up by Hercules’ followers. Oh, and she gets kidnapped.

Art lesson! Art lesson! Art lesson!

One can say Poseidon had it out for these beautiful and creative siblings ( and their muse) who rendered beautiful young women as pretty as the Nereids – if not prettier!

Uh-oh!

Who is giving these art lessons – is the question!

Jon Presco

In Greek mythology, Andromeda is the daughter of Cepheus, an Aethiopian king, and Cassiopeia. When Cassiopeia’s hubris leads her to boast that Andromeda is more beautiful than the Nereids, Poseidon sends a sea monster to ravage Aethiopia as divine punishment.[1] Andromeda is chained to a rock as a sacrifice to sate the monster, but is saved from death by Perseus, her future husband.

Her name is the Latinized form of the Greek Ἀνδρομέδα (Androméda) or Ἀνδρομέδη (Andromédē): “ruler of men”,[2] from ἀνήρ, ἀνδρός (anēr, andrós) “man”, and medon, “ruler”.

As a subject, Andromeda has been popular in art since classical times; it is one of several Greek myths of a Greek hero’s rescue of the intended victim of an archaic sacred marriage, giving rise to the “princess and dragon” motif. From the Renaissance, interest revived in the original story, typically as derived from Ovid’s account.

dragon999Michael John de Rougement Richardson had a solidly upper-class education at Harrow and then Kent School in Connecticut. Then, in 1943 he was commissioned in the Irish Guards. Though twice wounded, he became adjutant to the First Battalion, and was demobbed as a captain.

George de Rougemont: “In 1791, it travels to England where it returns visit to his established banking brothers to London.””Although it had originally operated from offices in the Palais-Royal, in 1851 the CNEP took out a lease on the Hôtel Rougemont (the residence and offices of the banker Rougemont) and transferred its head office to 14 rue Bergère.””Here, too dwell the great bankers of the rues
Laffitte and Bergère and also the merry gentlemen of private means of the chaussée d’Antin. Rothschild and Fould, Rougemont de Lowemberg and Ganneron live here. In a word, here lies the Stock Exchange, Tortoni[103] and all that is connected with or dependent on them.”

Sir Michael Richardson
Banker who advised Thatcher on her privatisation programme, but ended his career with a lifetime ban from City
ONCE KNOWN as “Mr Privatisation”, Sir Michael Richardson flew as high as any in the City during a 50-year banking career, working for the glittering names, advising Chancellors and Prime Ministers, and himself enjoying virtually celebrity status. And then in 2001 he was banned for life from doing business in the City “in any capacity”.
When Sir Evelyn de Rothschild recruited Richardson to be managing director of the merchant bank N. M. Rothschild in 1981, the chairman of rivals S. G. Warburg said it was the worst news he had had for a year. And Richardson soon showed why. Within a couple of months Rothschild was handling its first new issue for seven years, and the bank was beginning a period of domestic and international growth.
It was a propitious moment. Margaret Thatcher was embattled in her early and massively unpopular attempts to freeze the money supply, liberalise markets and remove the union noose from the necks of business. But by the time Richardson had arranged all the hunting prints and paintings in his plushly, pinkly carpeted office at Rothschilds, victory in the Falklands had given her the electoral security to push through a programme of privatisations that even she had not dared dream of when she first entered No 10.
Privatisations such as the gas, water and electricity industries, and the Big Bang in the City, would make Rothschilds several new fortunes, win Thatcher the gratitude of millions of small investor-voters, and turn Britain from the sickest to the healthiest of the European economies. As one of the chief deal- makers during these sell-offs, Richardson was intimate with the whole process.
Although he did not always concern himself with logistics — he had teams of people to worry about those — he became Thatcher’s favourite banker thanks to his support for her vision, his indeflectible outlook and his knowledge of how to gain the co-operation of the City. And as with most of Thatcher’s coterie of advisers in various fields, the admiration was mutual. “She has been a truly great Prime Minister,” Richardson said in 1990. “She has done more for the City and the country by creating free markets than anyone.”
Richardson’s zesty attitude to doing deals was similar to Thatcher’s attitude to running the country. He worked hard — usually at his desk by 8am — and followed his principles, but it had to be enjoyable too. So there were visits to the opera with the Thatchers, and one year the Richardsons spent Boxing Day at Chequers.
But as well as friendships with Cabinet Ministers such as Peter Walker, who organised the flotation of British Gas in 1986, Norman Lamont and other political standard bearers, Richardson’s charm and joie de travailler won him the personal loyalty of important private clients such as Lord King, with whom he had served in the Army in Palestine.
Another lucrative client was Lord Hanson, whom Richardson advised on the ballooning takeovers of London Brick in 1984 (£254 million), Imperial Group in 1986 (£2.6 billion) and, appropriately, Consolidated Gold Fields in 1989 (£3.5 billion). Richardson was also a friend of Asil Nadir, though his colleagues were more cautious than he about dealing with the proprietor of Polly Peck.
Born in London in 1925, the eldest of three sons, Michael John de Rougement Richardson had a solidly upper-class education at Harrow and then Kent School in Connecticut. Then, in 1943 he was commissioned in the Irish Guards. Though twice wounded, he became adjutant to the First Battalion, and was demobbed as a captain.
A flirtation with Cambridge quickly showed that the academic life was not for him, and in 1949 he began work for Harvey Drayton, working in the investment trust business for three years.
His true career began, however, when he joined Panmure Gordon as a junior partner in 1952. It was there that he first came across Robert Maxwell, when the firm acted in the flotation of Pergamon Press. Richardson claimed that they were not friends, but quarter of a century later, this time at Rothschilds, he acted again for Maxwell, whose Mirror Group he brought to market in 1991, and whose empire he tried to save, before it went belly-up in the Atlantic. Richardson was one of the first people telephoned by Kevin Maxwell when the news of his father’s disappearance came through, and he handled the request to the Stock Exchange to suspend the shares.
Richardson’s 19 years at Panmure Gordon were spent building a network of contacts, not least over lunches at the Savoy, where he was a director, and through the ultimate clique, the freemasons. In 1971 he moved to the stockbrokers Cazenove, and there — under his mentor Luke Meinertzhagen — he took part in important events such as the first sale of BP state shares, and relished battles such as the epic Grand Metropolitan/Watneys takeover, and the House of Fraser’s defence against the Lonrho takeover bid.
With his love of gossip, Richardson was a favourite with City editors, though he was sometimes over-optimistic about his own successes. The partners at Cazenove, that smoothest and most discreet of institutions, feared that he dropped rather too many names, and lived rather too flamboyantly, and the senior partnership did not come his way.
So the move to Rothschilds as managing director, 1981-90, suited him perfectly, giving him a vehicle for his energetic wheeler-dealing. He is said to have generated more fees in the state sell-offs than any other adviser, leading to a knighthood on his retirement from the firm in 1990. But at 65, perhaps unwisely, he had not had enough.
He became chairman of the stockbrokers Smith New Court for four years, and remained a consultant there for a further two. The results were once again impressive, with Smith New Court enjoying growth in its overseas business and becoming broker to four FTSE 100 stocks. However, the years of high Thatcherism and Richardson’s political influence were waning (dealing with John Major was a different matter, he found), and all the while the rules of the City were tightening, the way of doing business was changing, and his grasp of details was becoming weaker.
In 1996 Richardson moved again, to work for Hawkpoint Partners, an investment boutique then owned by NatWest. It was there that he wrote a series of letters on behalf of an acquaintance, Alan Shephard, which declared that credit of “up to $350 millions” would be available. Shephard, however, had twice been declared bankrupt, and in 2001 the Securities and Futures Authority decided that Richardson had been reckless in providing letters that might have been used in an advance fee fraud — a kind of money laundering.
Although Richardson had left Hawkpoint in 1999, the SFA found that he was no longer a fit and proper person to be working in the City. It accepted that he had not been dishonest or written the letters for personal gain, but said that he had ignored all modern compliance procedures. He had just happened to like Shephard. “I believed in him,” he said.The lifetime ban was perhaps rather an academic matter for a man of 76, but he was also ordered to pay £85,000 costs.
Richardson, who lived on the Isle of Wight, was a keen sailor, and a member of the Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes. As joint master of the Crawley and Horsham hunt, he was passionate about foxhunting, and never gave up the campaign for its continuance.
Michael Richardson married Octavia Mayhew (known as Paddy) in 1949, and was radiantly happy with this “most enchanting woman” for half a century until her death in 1999. He is survived by their son and two daughters.
Sir Michael Richardson, banker, was born on April 9, 1925. He died on May 12, 2003, aged

London, UK, is undisputedly the premiere global financial capital of the world in the 21st century.

The City is undoubtedly Europe’s largest and most vibrant center of world finance. More euros are traded daily in London than in the rest of Europe combined. Some 300 languages are spoken there, everything from Acholi to Zulu, all linked to the global lingua franca, english, the native language of the UK.

The “City” of London is a small enclave within the greater part of the larger city of London that is populated by an estimated 7.5 million people. The CITY is almost exactly 1 square mile (2.6 km) in area and is located dead center in the very heart of the larger city of London, per se’.

The City is a major business and financial powerhouse, has a resident population of roughly 10,000 and employs roughly 350,000 professional financial managers. The City is a sovereign entity unto itself and is governed by the City of London Corporation. It has a coat of arms containing 2 inward facing dragons that have a latin motto which translates into, “Lord, guide us”. Construction is booming in the City, as a new wave of skyscrapers are continually being built. Already the City boasts the tallest building in Europe, a 300 meter high glass pyramid at the foot of the London Bridge, similiar in design to the TransAmerica pyramid in the city of San Francisco, California, USA.

London has a vast critical mass of markets and financial services in commercial and investment banking, securities and derivatives, fund management, insurance and commodities. The City is playing a key role in pioneering and proliferating the development of the euro and financial service markets across the European Union.

Commonly referred to as the world’s new financial hub, the City houses the London Stock Exchange, Lloyds of London and the Bank of England, as well as other important financial institutions such as Barclays Bank, CitiGroup and HSBC. There are over 500 international banks that have offices and branches within the City.

The upcoming 2012 Olympic games are slated to be held in the City of London, bringing investment, status, prestige and international recognition to this newly dubbed 21st century hyper-capitalist city/state.

The City is often referred to as the “wealthiest square mile of land on Earth”. It is the Jewish House of Rothschild that owns, runs and controls the infamous ‘City’ in the very heart of downtown London. As a sovereign entity unto itself, the City commandeers its own internal police force and has recently fortified its perimeter boundries with a so-called “ring of steel”, ostensibly to protect its interests against any and all outside external threats.

According to Niall Ferguson’s book, “The House of Rothschild”, a history of the legendary European/Jewish/Zionist banking family, “there is but one power in Europe and that is Rothschild”. The Jewish House of Rothschild, headquartered in the City of London, has been in control of the world for a very long time. Their tentacles reach into many aspects of peoples daily lives throughout the world, principally because of their extensive global financial power in the affairs of nations. The infamous Bilderberg group, formed in the late 1950’s and meeting annually in various locations throughout the world, is merely a deceptive front through which the House of Rothschild publically sculpts and shapes its fascist New World Order agenda.

The extent of Jewish Rothschild control over the finances of the USA, in particular, is accomplished through direct private ownership of the US Federal Reserve system, owned by Nathan M Rothschild and Sons of London. Further financial power is furnished through the activities of great jewish banking and investment corporations, headquartered predominantly within the city of New York, USA. These include; Goldman-Sachs, Kuhn-Loeb, Lazard Freres and Lehman Brothers. This hidden force also provides US politicians and universities with large jewish endowments, further solidifying control, influence and subservience to the Jewish House of Rothschild.

Further control is exercised by the US Council of Foreign Relations (CFR), a cousin of the Royal Institute of International Affairs based in London. CFR membership is practically a requirement for getting elected to the US President and Vice President offices in the USA. In fact, VP Dick Cheney was a former director of the CFR.

9/11 and the attack on the World Trade Center in New York, was orchestrated by Britain, America and Israel under orders from the Rothschild Empire as a pretext for removing the freedom and liberty from people worldwide in exchange for global Nazi style state security.

The Jewish House of Rothschild and their New World Order agenda calls for centralized control and authority over the entire planet. Their power is concentrated in the City of London, UK, the core centre of the international banking establishment. Highly organized and operating in a veil of secrecy and deception, international jewry rules the world by proxy, that is, they get others to fight and die for them (i.e. the so-called “American” War on Terror being fought in Iraq and Afghanistan).

The fact that the richest, most powerful transnational empire on Earth is jewish should come as no suprise. The House of Rothschild unabashedly owns and controls the land, economy and destiny of the State of Israel and international judaism, and has been THE major force behind world zionism. Their sole objective at present is to gain control of the entire land base of Palestine, particularily the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The Endgame is to implement One World Government, theologically headquartered in Jerusalem, Israel, the spiritual nerve center and endtime platform through which Lucifer (the god of this world) will make his final stand (through a self-annointed jewish Christ figure- the Antichrist of holy scripture) against the coming interdimensional/multidimensional alien/extraterrestrial invasion of the coming Kingdom of Heaven from on high at Judgement Day.

She felt how hard I was, and we were making great haste to get naked. There was much rustling. We were calling to each other with lustful moans and all that wonderous speech. I never felt so encouraged. I had to have her, be inside her. I know Rena wanted us to unite, be as one. She was driven. Her heat filled the studio with an incredible energy. Then, came the cough!

My friend Brian was ten feet away, up on his bed, we on his floor. He had kidnapped Rena five hours earlier on Pismo Beach, and had not talked to us, but when he threw some blankets down for us. Three days earlier, I lived in the apartment across the hall, and gave it up for Brian’s friend, and his wife who had just given birth to baby girl.

I cupped Renas breasts……

Another cough!

I cupped Rena’s head in my hands, and held her still.

What! What! What?

I moved my lips very close to her ear and whispered;

“We can’t do this. It is not fair for my friend.”

Rena’s whole body let go a sigh, and she fell down beside me. I nestled her under my arm. I gently ran my fingers over her beautiful face. My hands spoke volumes of love. She let the fire, go, and she was asleep.

This was enough. Rena had kissed her hero, the loving man who rescued her. There can be no greater tension then this. It was Biblical – and Epic! Only a great knight would give up his home for a mother and child. Only a greater knight is destined to champion one of the most beautiful women in the world. I did both. I did the right thing. I felt Rena’s dreams merge with mine.

The cote of arms of Lloyd’s contains the cross and sword of Saint George who saved a fair maiden from a dragon, and thus the dragon of the City of London, the wealthiest place on earth. I believe the Rougemont family of Lloyd’s springs from the Noble_Order_of_Saint_George_of_Rougemont.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss_Re

The coat of arms of Llloyd’s of London contains the same Knight
Templar cross and sword that we see in the City of London coat of
arms. The modern buildings of Lloyd’s of London, and Swiss Re,
dominate the heart of the City of London where Templars allegedly
controlled Britian’s banking, and from them rose the Gnomes of
Zurich Switzerland. This merger may have only taken place in the
cityscape above, where the dome of Swiss Re is in back of the
Lloyd’s of London building. Together, they make a city of tomorow, a
global city that gathers together all the Hugenot Banking families
whom fled to Geneva, and then England. The Herbert de Rougemont
family was one of them. My Huguenot Rougemont ancestors lived in
Basel where Swiss Re has its roots, and then fled to England and
Canada.

Herbert de Rougemont was there in the beginning of Lloyd’s. His
genealogy says he was an underwriter who lived in Craven Hill
Gardens and had six servants. He is the great grandfather of Sir
Michael John de Rougemont Richardson whose mother, Audrey de
Rougemont, married Arthur Wray Richardson. The Rougemont home later
became the Hempel Hotel.

In November 1996, the Corporation acquired, through a United Kingdom
holding company, Capital Re (UK) Holdings, 100% of the issued shares
of Tower Street Holdings Limited (now known as RGB Holdings, Ltd.),
the holding company for RGB Underwriting Agencies Ltd. (“RGB”). RGB
is a managing agency and presently manages five syndicates operating
in the Lloyd’s of London (“Lloyd’s”) insurance market. In November
1997, RGB Holdings, Ltd. acquired 100% of C.I. de Rougemont Group
Limited, the ultimate holding company for C.I. de Rougemont & Co.
Ltd. (“CIDR”), another Lloyd’s managing agency. CIDR manages two
syndicates, one marine and the other non-marine.

1685, Geneva housed many of the Huguenot refugees chassed out by
Louis XIV. A good number of today’s private bankers in Geneva are
descendants of the French Protestant immigrants.

The Huguenot network of bankers abroad remained of considerable
assistance to Samuel Bernard during the period of his financial
ascendancy, while he was the ‘banker of the Protestants’ in exile.
Some of the Huguenot bankers in exile achieved astonishing pre-
eminence, witness the careers of two of them who became founding
directors of the Bank of England. In order to assess the
significance of the Huguenot banking exodus, however, we need not
merely to look at French nationals abroad, but at Genevans. Many of
the Genevan bankers were French-born Huguenots, and Geneva took full
economic advantage of its neutrality during the War of the Spanish
Succession. There is no doubt at all that Huguenots and Genevans
were primary investors in English stocks in the early eighteenth
century. The number of Protestant bankers at Paris in the later
eighteenth century remained totally disproportionate to the number
of Protestants within the population as a whole.

Jane O’Beirne’s letters are a treasure trove preserved by the La
Touche family all these years and never before published. Jane, the
granddaughter of an Earl, helped educate and befriended Anne
Caroline Tottenham, the future Mrs. John David La Touche. This Irish
family with Huguenot roots were important bankers and leaders; major
investors in establishing the Bank of Ireland, still the biggest
bank in Ireland and now headquartered in the building that housed
the Irish Parliament which was dissolved in 1800 after the
disastrous rebellion of two years before. Jane’s letters are full of
names that will become famous in history in Ireland and the United
States. We are grateful to David A. La Touche, Ph.D., to his
ancestors and especially to his great-great grandmother, Anne
Caroline La Touche, for preserving these letters.

Lloyd’s of London is the world’s leading insurance market, its
underwriting syndicates providing a wide range of insurance cover to
the marine, offshore and aviation industries, in addition to
commercial and domestic sectors.

The Lloyd’s Agency system is a worldwide network of companies which
are selected and appointed by the Corporation of Lloyd’s, to provide
surveying and investigation services and to supply local information
on events or occurrences which may be of interest to Lloyd’s
Underwriters.
In the event of a loss or damage which may give rise to a claim on a
Marine Insurance Policy or Underwriters at Lloyd’s, the Lloyd’s
Agent is able to provide invaluable assistance in protecting the
interests of both Underwriters and the Assured.

A Adamson & Company are the appointed Lloyd’s Agents at Glasgow,
also having a sub-agency at the port of Leith. We also undertake a
wide range of surveys in addition to those required in connection
with insurance claim purposes – these include verifying the stowage
and securing of cargo, out-turn inspections, towage approval
surveys, and hatch/hold and vessel condition surveys.

Templars in England

The history of the Templars in England began when Hughes de Payens,
Grandmaster of the order visited the country in 1128 to raise men
and money for the crusade. The first house was in London and early
patrons include Earl Robert de Ferrers, Bernard de Balliol, King
Stephen of England and Queen Matilda. Henry II granted them land
across England, including some land by Castle Barnard on the River
Fleet where they built a round church. They were also given the
advowson of St Clement Danes. In 1184 their headquarters was
transferred to the New Temple where once again they built a round
church.

Cazenove Group plc is one of the United Kingdom’s oldest and most
venerable investment bankers, providing capital management and
equities and international market investment services to the
country’s elite. The company counts the Queen of England among its
clients, as well as nearly half of the country’s largest 100
companies. With a history reaching back to the early decades of the
19th century, Cazenove has been forced to undergo a sea-change at
the beginning of the 21st century in order to remain a competitive
banking force. Operated as a partnership for most of its more than
180 years, Cazenove converted to a corporation in 2001 and even
toyed with the idea of going public. Instead, at the beginning of
2005, the company spun off its investment banking business into a
joint venture with JPMorgan of the United States, creating JPMorgan
Cazenove Holdings. In this way, JPMorgan achieved an entry into the
dynamic London investment banking sector, while Cazenove obtained
the deep pockets and career perspective capable of attracting the
financial industry’s top talents. Nonetheless, soon after the launch
of the joint venture, the company announced the defection of three
of its senior members. The agreement also gives JPMorgan the right
to acquire full control of the joint venture as early as 2010.
Cazenove traditionally conducts most of its operations from its
London offices, and in the early 2000s the company closed a number
of its overseas offices, notably in India and Australia. Cazenove
maintains subsidiary offices in the United States, Germany, France,
China, Hong Kong, and South Africa. The group posted turnover of
£292.9 million ($500 million), prorated for the full year 2004 in
order to align itself with JPMorgan’s calendar year. Cazenove is led
by chairman David Mayhew, who joined as a partner in 1968.
Huguenot Origins in the 18th Century

Cazenove’s roots lay in the Huguenot exile, following the revocation
of France’s Edict of Nantes, which had established guarantees of
religious freedom for the country’s Protestants in 1685. Many
Huguenots moved to Geneva, where they became leading financiers. By
the late 18th century, the Huguenot population had begun to emigrate
to other parts of Europe and to the United States. England, already
the financial center of Europe, attracted many Huguenot banking
families, notably the Cazenove family, led by James Casenove.

James Casenove’s youngest son, Philip, was born in 1799 and entered
the financial world in 1819, joining brother-in-law and fellow
Huguenot John Menet at his brokerage. By 1823, Philip Casenove had
become a partner in that business, marking the beginning of the late
Cazenove Group. Menet died in 1835, and Cazenove then formed a
partnership with Joseph Laurence and Charles Pearce.

In 1854, however, Philip Cazenove formed P. Cazenove & Co. in a
partnership with his son and nephew. That partnership quickly rose
to prominence, in large part because of its involvement in the
financial side of the railroad industry. Yet a part of Philip
Cazenove’s success was also attributed to his relationship with the
powerful Rothschild banking family, which served as a patron and
later as a financial partner in many of Cazenove’s transactions. In
1859, for example, Cazenove joined with the Rothschilds to act as a
broker for the raising of capital for the San Paulo Railway Company.

In 1862, the company served another important client, acting as
broker for the formation of the Bank of Hindustan. Cazenove’s
interests in India extended to the construction of the country’s
railroad industry. In the 1870s, the company served as broker for
His Highness the Nizam’s State Railway Company. In 1883, the company
helped raise funding for the launch of the Bengal Central Flotilla
Company, which operated a steamship service between Khoolna and
Burrisaul. Closer to home, Cazenove’s helped raise the funding for
the Atlantic Telegraph Company, launched in 1863, and the Great
Eastern Railway Company in 1868.

Through the end of the 19th century, Cazenove was involved in a
number of exotic transactions, such as the issuing of land mortgage
bonds in Russia in 1874, as well as the creation of the Metropolitan
District Railway Company, which built the London Underground. The
partnership’s reputation as a preeminent investment banker was
solidified when it acquired such prominent clients as the British
royal family. Indeed, into the 21st century, the Queen of England
remained a steadfast Cazenove client.

Weathering Railway Nationalization in the 1940s

Philip Cazenove died in 1880, leaving behind one of England’s most
important financial houses. The Cazenove family remained prominent
members of the partnership through the 19th and 20th centuries,
during which the firm continued to bring in new partners. One of the
most important of these was Swainston Howeden Akroyd, who joined the
partnership in 1889. Considered one of the “fathers” of the London
Stock Exchange, Akroyd brought in his brother, as well as his name,
to the partnership, which became known as Cazenove and Akroyd.
By then, Cazenove had already established its rather exclusive
recruiting practices. Partners seemed more or less required to have
attended elite schools such as Eton or Winchester and to have been
members of the Brigade of Guards. The partnership also became famous
for its embrace of formality and tradition, enforcing highly
restrictive dress codes into the “casual dress” era of the 1990s and
2000s.

Cazenove made a number of acquisitions of other brokerage and
private banking firms in the early decades of the 20th century. The
partnership later extended its name to Cazenove Akroyds and
Greenwood & Co. in order to reflect its expanded form. Much of
Cazenove’s financial success had been linked to its longstanding
involvement in the British and worldwide railroad industry. Cazenove
had played a prominent role in the development of the British
railroads, which in turn were a major stimulant to the country’s
economic and industrial growth through the 19th century and into the
20th century. The British railroad system, like that of the American
railroad industry, had been largely built up and controlled by
private interests.
Into the 1940s, Cazenove’s fortunes remained entwined with the
railroad industry, notably with its involvement in the Butler-
Henderson Great Western Railway, as well as its dealings in railway
shares. Yet the outbreak of World War II, and the nationalization of
Britain’s railroad system, nearly spelled disaster for the Cazenove
partnership. As the London Times pointed out in an article in
1968: “Before the war it was said that … if the railways
disappeared, Cazenove would go bust. In fact, it has adapted itself
so well since nationalization that it is more powerful than ever.”

Marine Society to merge with Sea Cadets

By David OslerJune 03 2004

Lloyds List

THE Marine Society is to lose its independence and merge with the
Royal Navy-controlled Sea Cadets, after being forced to discontinue
its trainingship activities for financial reasons.Both decisions –
announced at the organisation’s annual meeting in Londonyesterday,
which was addressed by the Princess Royal – appear to
reflectfinancial realities determined by the continuing decline in
UK seafarernumbers.The accounts given to attendees showed that
subscription and donationincome totalled just ?43,700 ($80,320) last
year.Expenditure of training activities alone – most notably on the
vessel TSEarl of Romney – was over 10 times that figure.But although
Earl of Romney offered basic sea experience to more than 560adults
and young people last year, the 1957-built vessel is to be paid
offthis year, and not replaced.There is no immediate financial
crisis, given that the organisation hasbuilt up fixed assets of
around ?8.8m in the centuries since its foundationin 1756.However,
chairman Clive de Rougemont admitted: “Over the past year,
thecouncil has been doing much soul-searching over the future of the
society.”It would be “problematical to say the least” to find the
cash for a newtraining ship, and a radical solution was needed.Thus
it had been decided to pool resources with another
complimentarycharity and to merge with the Sea Cadet Association.The
new organisation will be called The Marine Society and Sea Cadets,
hesaid.

History[edit source]

Origin (1390)[edit source]

The noble Brotherhood of Saint George was created in 1390 by two gentlemen of Franche-Comté to honor the relics of the megalomartyr that had been brought back from the Holy Land. Philibert de Mollans, squire to the Duke of Burgundy, was its main driving force. His second-in-command, Jehan d’Andelot, was the son of Sir Jean of Andelot-les-Sallins, and of Marie of Usier, Lady of Vaudrey and Rougemont, where lived the precursors and was held the annual chapter.

The Confraternity (1430-1484)[edit source]

By the time Philip the Good created the Order of the Golden Fleece, on 10 January 1430, there were 24 holders: after the Grand-Master came immediately His Majesty William III of Vienna, in order of precedence. The governor gathered around 1435 or 1440 a certain number of Knights to honor the relics in a chapel that he owned close to the city of Rougemont. Then he decided to celebrate every year the day of the St. George, patron saint of the nobility because he had also been a knight, and was often represented riding his horse with a spear.

The qualities required were sixteen quarterings of nobility, catholic religion, birth in “Franche Comté”, to be sixteen years of age and to donate 300 livre.

The governor general was elected for life by the knights. The other officers were a prelate, a chancellor, a treasurer and two secretaries.

Since then, the most important lords of the region wanted to be accepted in the confraternity and gathered every year at the Chapel of Rougement on 22 April, to celebrate the Day of the Saint.

At that time their insignia was a medal of St. George killing the dragon, suspended from a gold chain.

Philip the Good authorised the confraternity to wear the medal suspended from a red ribbon identical to the one of the Golden Fleece.
