Not only the Roman Catholic Chaplain wears a neck-cross, also the Protestant Chaplains (Evangelische) wears a cross, but without the "Corpus" (body of Christ). On official "business" the RC Chalpains also wears the "stola", a coloured scarf.

The "all white" funeral was not uncommon for nobility. When in 1934 Prince Henry of Mecklenburg, who was married to Queen Wilhelmina of The Netherlands, died he had an all white funeral. Also, when Queen Wilhelmina died (1962), her funeral was in white.

Hi Odulf,

Thanks for the information.
