A Celebration of 150yrs of the Province of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and
‘A great piece of investigative work by the author, who strove tirelessly to
recover the lost seventy years of the Province’s history. In so doing, he has
produced a superb reference book and definitive history of our Preceptories
and our Priors who are no longer just names. They now come to life and their
contribution and service may be celebrated. This unique endeavour deserves
resounding success and acclaim’.
