A tribute to HRH Grand Duke Jean
The British-Luxembourg Society pays tribute to the life of
HRH the Grand Duke was for many years a patron of the Sir Winston Churchill
Memorial Lectures organised by the British-Luxembourg Society jointly with l'Association des Anciens Combatants and La Ligue
Luxembourgeoise des Prisionniers et Déportés Politiques, and we had been advised by the Grand Duke's Marshal that he intended to attend

The British-Luxembourg Society was represented at Grand Duke Jean’s funeral service by its Secretary, Andrée Wietor. Its Honorary President Maître Jacques Loesch was Chamberlain to the Grand Duke for many years.
At that service a moving tribute to HRH the Grand Duke was provided by the pipers of the Irish Guards Regiment. He returned to Luxembourg at the end of WW2 as an officer of that regiment, to which he remained associated over very many years as Colonel.
