    GCMG to Japanese

    Recommended Posts

    Hi forum members,

    since I have shown my DSO to a Japanese navy officer, here a GCMG bestowed to a Japanese statesman in 1906. Takaaki Kato was Minister of Foreign Affairs when Prince Arthur of Connaught led a mission to Japan to present the Order of the Garter on behalf of King Edward VII to Emperor Meiji. Kato later became Japanese ambassador to the Court of St. James. When he was ambassador in London, he had a mantle made for his GCMG, which, together with the order including collar, is in my collection.

    Hope you enjoy the pictures,
