As their vessels were on the hard for the winter months, the Brothers of the Corpus Christi table took time to bolster the armaments of the table.
Swords were purloined for every Brother in the table. Emblazoned on the swords is “Brotherhood of The Coast” on one side and the Brother’s nom de guerre with his flag number on the other.
The Brothers were presented with their swords at the February Boucan at Brother Knot head’s home.
For his lengthy (eight years and counting) and meritorious service, Table Captain Lost Louie was presented with a print “En Garde” by Albert Seidl, which was signed by all Brothers of the table.
