Award documents by king Edward VIII


Recommended Posts

Dear Great Britain Forum members,

recently, I bought an award document for the KCB, signed by King Edward VIII in June 1936. Unfortunately it had been framed and displayed, so the signatures have faded somewhat, but are still clearly legible, and for the rest the document is in a good state.

I wonder how many Orders (not only of the Order of The Bath) were awarded during the reign of King Edward VIII, bearing his signature. Undoubtedly, the Chancery of British Orders will have a list of all names, but probably not grouped according to reign. If some fellow forum member has some information on the numbers, I will be very happy to hear it. As the King reigned less than a year, I suppose not so many Orders were issued.

Thanks in advance and stay safe, 

Pieter
