NOTES FOR THE HERALD
This award involves membership in the Order, and isn't usually given in the absence of the recipient, but the Crown may want to delegate some Noble to award the honor.
Make sure that there is a medallion of the Order on hand.
Be sure you can read the scroll. If you can't, get the text written out for you.
