โ€œIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of our friend and Sealand pioneer Sir Roland Teschner, First Minister of Construction, after a long & courageous battle with cancer.
In a search for adventure, Roland and his friend Walter appeared on my fatherโ€™s doorstep in the winter of 1968. They had hitchhiked from Germany, where they had seen a news report on the fledgeling state of Sealand and its struggles with the UK government and battles with rival โ€˜Pirate Radioโ€™ factions. โ€œWe have come to help youโ€, they announced enthusiastically.
Roland and Walter were hugely instrumental in putting together Sealandโ€™s basic power and mechanical infrastructure and have been lifelong friends and Sealanders.โ€

RIP old friend.

As seen in Prince Michael of Sealandโ€™s book โ€˜Holding the Fortโ€˜ the two German boys named Walter (19) and Roland (18), had planned to hitchhike to Namibia, and decided to change their destination to the Principality of Sealand. Walter had an apprenticeship as an electrician and sported a thin wispy mustache, while Roland had an apprenticeship as a metalworker and locksmith.

The chapter โ€˜German Friendsโ€™ reveals how Walter and Roland have failed to contact Sealand, and then attempted to row seven miles to the fort before they were rescued by a local firefighter. They eventually found Sealand and stayed with the Bates family for years.

Roland and Walter helped the Bates family with repairs to the fort, including a disastrous attempt to take the boat through an artillery range, resulting in a collision with a lifting road bridge and a rescue by military police.

According to Prince Michael, โ€˜Roland was the quieter of the two, a very steady and reliable man.โ€™

Rest in peace, dear friend. The Principality of Sealand expresses its sincere gratitude for your unwavering devotion and service. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones during this difficult time.
