I have a photo of my grandfather in splendid regalia.  Can anyone identify it please?
Thanks

You have R.O.R. in the subject line, but the image looks more like R.O.H.  [I know nothing about regalia.]

The Knight of Merit wears a red bordered apron with matching shoulder sash embroidered with
the name of the awarding lodge and the words “KOM”, gauntlet cuffs, collar chain and collarette.
The Roll of Honour wears similar regalia but with a sky blue border and is embroidered with the
words “ROH”.
