|Latvia celebrates 100 years navy and recognizes it founder Archibald Keyserling.|
In August 2019, Jeanne de Keyserling (widow of Patrick de Keyserling) and her son Alexander as well as Andreas Rogal and his wife Ingrida were all in Riga, Latvia. Andreas and Alexander are direct descendants of Archibald Keyserling and were invited to Riga by the Latvian Navy. The occasion was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Latvian Navy, which Archibald Keyserling contributed to substantially. Archibald was the Navys first commanding officer and, in 1929, also became its first Admiral. Jeanne provided a number of great pictures of the occasion on her Facebook page, some of which can be seen at the URL below. Note that when you open picture file there are arrows on the left and right which allow you to see all the 15 pictures posted.
