Award/Scroll Wording:
While traversing the vast lands of Our Kingdom, We, Tom and Sigrid, King and Queen of Northshield, were lucky to happen upon Gerald Loosehelm, after the amazing tales we heard about him. He is a man of many talents that include needlework, armoring and jewelry creations. He has gone above and beyond by analyzing the construction of aiglets, even obtaining museum pieces to analyze. He also takes great delight in sharing his knowledge with others.

For these many reasons, We feel Gerald is most deserving to be inducted into the Order of the Brigits Flame.

Done by Our hands, this twenty-fifth day of April, A.S. XLIX, C.E. MMXV.
