In 1972 the Board of Directors had created an Order of the Pelican. By 1976 the Board of Directors had ceased awarding this version. See the History of the West Kingdom webpage on the topic. In August 1974 (A.S. IX) King William of Hoghton created the West Kingdom Order of the Pelican, and created Stefan de Lorraine principal of that order. The principal of the Order of the Pelican of Meridies is Mistress Rebecca of Tywyn the Demanding, elevated on June 25, 1977 (A.S. XII) by Prince John the Bearkiller and Princess Kassandra of the Principality of Meridies.
Members of the Order of the Pelican strive to attain a standard of service which is above and beyond that normally expected of members of the Society. They are charged with setting an example of courtesy and chivalrous conduct, respecting the Crown of the kingdom; to support and uphold the Laws of the kingdom and Corpora, (if in fealty) supporting and upholding the Crown of his or her kingdom, enrinching the kingdom by sharing his or her knowledge and skills, and advising the Crown on the advancement of candidates for the Pelican.
Members of the Order are adressed as Master or Mistress (or they can use an Alternate Title that matches their persona if they so wish) and can display the regalia of the Order. The symbol for the Order is a Pelican in her piety. It shows a mother Pelican piercing her breast to feed her children. Members of the Order are allowed to wear a Cap of Maintenance, which is a red hat with ermine fur trim.
