Petition for Recognition of Chivalric Membership and Rank

I do hereby petition The Augustan Society to recognize the following rank and membership in the chivalric order or organization of a chivalric nature named below. Honors so recognized may include the use of appropriate postnominal letters in communications by the Society.

I recognize that it is the policy of the Society to recognize only one postnominal from each category (e.g.: academic, religeous, chivalric, Society, military). On request, petitioners may have any three postnominals used. Please contact Headquarters separately for details.

I have provided a copy of the brevet or diploma, or some alternate means of verification, for the recognition requested.

Note: If a Society postnominal has been granted and is not included above, the third postnominal request will be discarded. There is no charge for listing a previously recognized postnominal.

For chivalric honors (including honors of a chivalric nature): provide a copy of the brevet or diploma, or provide an alternate means of confirmation (many orders have web sites listing members).

For academic honors: provide the degree type (MA, PhD, etc), institution, subject, and date of matriculation. Supporting data is normally not required, but may be requested if the institution or degree is unfamiliar.

For military honors: provide the country, branch of service, and rank. Supporting data is normally not required.

For Society honors: give the date granted, if possible.

There is no charge for recognition of promotions within previously recognized memberships, even if this means different postnominals are to be used.

It is the policy of the Society to use only three postnominals at a time, one of which shall be the most senior postnominal held from the Society. Should you qualify for more than three postnominals, those used may be changed by this petition. If all such honors have previously been recognized by the Society, no fee applies. Society publications and web sites use only the most senior relevant Society postnominal.

Chivalric honors are reviewed by the Chivalry Committee; academic, military, and Society honors are reviewed by Headquarters, using the same form.
