The Cross of the Temple shall be placed nearest to the centre of the Tunic, the Cross of Malta next to it and in line, with it further away from the centre, the Star shall be placed below them both, and centrally between them.
The sash should be worn over the right shoulder and under the left arm, and under the Belt with the fringe lying on the outside of the Sword Scabbard.
