Order of the Yew Bow

The Order of the Yew Bow is an Order of High Merit that honors and recognizes those subjects who have distinguished themselves by their excellence with bow and arrow (both target and combat), thrown weapons, and/or siegecraft or the teaching of those same skills.

In November 1993, the former Order of the King's Missiliers, for combat archery, and the former order of the Nimrod, for target archery, were closed, and their recipients were considered recipients of the new (now former) Award of Yew and Sinew. The award was later renamed the Yew Bow. The award was closed and the order created as an AoA level, polling order on January 1, 2002. All recipients of the Order of the King's Missiliers (prior to Feb. 7, 2003), the Order of the Nimrod (now closed), and the Award of the Yew Bow (now closed) will be considered to be recipients of this award. As of April 1, 2003, the Yew Bow became a Grant level polling order, and was expanded from just archery to include siege and thrown weapons. The first to receive this accolade at the hands of TRM Baudoin and Caterina were Randall Arrowsmith (under the name Order of the King's Missiliers) and Aelfred of Cres (under the name Order of the Nimrod) on October 3, 1987.
