    History

    I joined the Society in 1991, and first got interested with fencing in 1994 as part of my first living expedition to the Barony of River Haven (central). I turned up to the practice expecting Olympic foil, which I had learnt previously at the same place. I authorised at the Bacchus Wood Anniversary event in 1994, and by either chance or skill (I still don't know which) came second in the tournament. I became Baronial Rapier Champion in 1995 and held it until 2000, through the infamous rapier ban in the West. I retired briefly in 2000 and took it again in 2001. From about 1996 I started training with Paul Sawtell, and learnt at a great rate of knots, I still thank him for the privilege. It is thanks to Paul that I have been able to progress so well and achieve the rank of Provost in 2001 at Rowany Festival. I became Baronial Rapier Marshal of River Haven in 2001, and only recently relinquished it to my successor. I have established two fencing schools, one in Castellum Montanum, which has since ceased to exist and the most recent one in River Haven (central) which is growing nicely. In at the Investiture of Baron Somerled of Redcliffe and Baroness Caelia the Fair in 2002, I was awarded with the Order of the Rapier of Lochac, and much to my surprise, was elevated to the rank of Court Baron at the same event, by His Majesty King Alfar and Her Majesty Queen Elspeth. Guildmaster Henry played his Guildmaster's Prize against Ancient Guildmaster Edmund the Lame, Ancient Guildmaster Dameon Greybeard, Guildmaster ibn Jelal and Guildmaster Silfren the Singer, at the Gathering of the Guilds in St Florians, 2003. He is the second person to achieve the rank of Guildmaster of Defence in Lochac.

    On the 3rd of July AS XXXIX (2004), Their Royal Majesties Draco and Serena did elevate Henry the Fox to the Order of the White Scarf of Lochac. The scarf given to Don Henry was the scarf received by Don Fran├žois from Adib ibn Jelal who received it from Don Tivar Moondragon.

    On the 18th of November AS LI (2017), Their Royal Majesties Steffan and Branwen did elevate Henry Fox to the Order of Defence.

    On the 8th of June AS LIV (2019), Their Royal Majesties Felix and Eva did elevate Henry Fox to the Order of The Laurel
