In 2015 I had the honour to be one of the presenters of this official seminar regarding 200 years of the Military Order of William. The highest order for bravery in the Netherlands and rarely awarded since 1940.
One of the 2 recent awardees, Major Kroon RMWO4, also was one of the presenters talking about the effects of receiving this honor on his life. Here we are shaking hands!
I want to share here the information regarding the variations of the 4 classes and the paperwork etc of the Order of William to a broader public so the presentation I gave then is here in PDF format: 200-jaar-mwo-18092015
