NB: Full and further MHOSD Material will be posted to my AWNM&S - History Archive.
Further, very relevant, if you stretch yourself a bit, intellectually and historically, you may see a connection with John Wake's interest in all this , with his other great patriotic passionate historical Interest in King Arthur, and yes, the ''Myth of Britain'' which we could well do without (Unfortunatly King Arthur, is by now Anglo - Post 1536 Tudor/Cambro ''Brit'' contaminated as Leeks and Daffodils etc, being of no service or use to a Welsh Nationalist Cause and Struggle). Aiding, assisting and perhaps abetting in promotion of ''Cilts Cymry'' and the 'Cross of Saint David' are the MILTARY AND HOSPITALLER ORDER OF SAINT DAVID and CAMBRIA MAGAZINE. Cambria Magazine Editor Henry Jones Davies is also an early member'' of the MHOSD, and certainly was at their second founding meeting in November of 2001. This rather ''secretive'', almost ''Masonic'' society, at it's first founding meeting in September 2001, had voted to adopt the ''Cilt Cymry'' as its ''Costume Dress Uniform'' along with use of the 'Cross of Saint David' as part of MHOSD regalia. At the second founders meeting Mark Roberts and Henry Jones Davies were appointed as members of this rather ''secretive society'' to advance the ''Cilts and Cross Regalia'' idea as presented by Mark Roberts to this meeting, with actual show of the intended costume. I presume this was done with the Tartan Centre being taken aboard as supplier at cost, of course? interestingly Cambria Magazine shared a stall with the Tartan Centre at the 2004 Eisteddfod Casnewydd (see photo below) . I am not sure if the 'Tartan Centre Business' sponsors with Cambria, the annual Saint David's Day parade in Caerdydd, but they do sponsor Adam Phillips of Balchder Cymru (see their website), newly formed 'Cambria Band' boasting to be the first ever ''Kilted Band'' in Wales? Not so, as no doubt a Scots Kilted Band led England's ''Highlander mercenaries'' into Merthyr Tudful on the 3 June 1831, to later shoot and kill over 28 Workers and people in an event known in our radical patriotic history as ''BLOODY FRIDAY''.

Tramp! Tramp! Tramp! the boys are marching, Bang! Bang! Bang! goes the Drums, but whose calling the tune?
That simple, choice is yours. March for an ''Augustine Saint'' or March for a Warrior, that sought our Freedom.
