The Most Honourable Order of the Bath, order of British knighthood established by King George I inconferred as a reward either for military service or for exemplary civilian merit. The rest of the statutes were mostly based on those of the Order of the Garter, of which he was an officer as Garter King of Arms. However, there had never before been an Order of the Bath. A strong following in Parliament depended on being able to supply places, pensions, and other marks of Royal favour to the government's supporters. The patron saint of the Order of the Garter is St George and as he is the patron saint of soldiers and also of England, the spiritual home of the order has therefore always been St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. These forces then proceeded to steal treasures and plate from St George's Chapel.

This high privilege is shared only by members of the Royal Family, peers, Knights and Ladies of the Garter, and Knights and Dames Grand Cross of the junior orders of chivalry and clan chiefs. They do not use the circlet of the order. In addition foreigners had usually been provided with stars made of silver and diamonds, whereas ordinary members had only embroidered stars. The Greater George must be worn on all official holidays, on Ascension Day, at the funeral of a member of the Order, and when a member of the Order is created a Peer. No matter what motto is placed upon the garter, it is both bad form and absolutely incorrect for any one who is not a Knight of the Garter to use a garter in any heraldic display.

They are mostly carved from lime wood which Ian then paints and gilds and are between 12 - 28 inches high. Each point of the cross is decorated by a small gold ball; each angle has a small figure of a lion. This high privilege is shared only by members of the Royal Family, peers, Knights and Ladies of the Garter, and Knights and Dames Grand Cross of the junior orders of chivalry and clan chiefs. Such appointments were and are occasionally made to non-Christian rulers for example, the Shah of Persia inwhich prompted some debate over the possibility of removing Christian imagery the cross of St George from the Order when it is given to non-Christian recipients; in the end however the design remained unchanged. The patron saint of the Order of the Garter is St George and as he is the patron saint of soldiers and also of England, the spiritual home of the order has therefore always been St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle. Keith Evans's presence at the College of Arms after nearly sixty years of service will be sadly missed.

The warrant states that during a battle in with Angles under Aethelstanthe cross of St Andrew appeared in the sky to AchaiusKing of Scots; after his victory, he established the Order of the Thistle and dedicated it to the saint.

In the early medieval period the difference seems to have been that the full ceremonies were used for men from more prominent families. Work also even began on a gigantic circular building two-hundred feet across within the upper ward of the castle to house this so-called Order of the Round Table.

Knights Commanders of the Bath have no collar and cannot claim a grant of supporters, but they encircle their shields with the circlet of the order, suspending their badge below the shield by the ribbon from which it is worn.

Anstis, a strong personality and a divisive figure, persuaded Queen Anne to sign a patent by the terms of which he would become Garter when Sir Henry died. They had to be of the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel or Post-Captain. These provided yet another opportunity for political patronage, as they were to be sinecures at the disposal of the Great Master, supported by fees from the knights.

Further, no Companion of an Order is permitted to use the Circlet of the Order, whilst every Companion has his badge.

Such forms are not used by peers and princes, except when the names of the former are written out in their fullest forms. It is doubtful, however, how far this practice is correct, inasmuch as a medal does not technically rank as a decoration or as a matter of honour.

The Knights Commander were limited toexclusive of foreign nationals holding British commissions, up to ten of whom could be appointed as honorary Knights Commander. The victor on this occasion would also win the defeated knights horse.

At present there are almost Garter Knights stall plates in St George's Chapel the earliest surviving plate is that of Ralph, Lord Basset of Drayton who was elected to the Order in All Knights of the Bath, before the enlargement of the order, had supporters.
