The Arms of Douglas Warren Densmore

Conferrals: H.M. Queen Elizabeth II appointed the armiger as Commander of the Most Venerable Order of St. John, an order of chivalry of the British Monarchy, which appointment was published in the London Gazette (No. 59148) on August 5, 2009. On November 4 2002, His Royal Highness Prince Victor Emmanuel of Savoy, son of the late King Umberto II of Italy and Head of the Royal House of Savoy, appointed the armiger as a knight in the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus, a dynastic order of chivalry of the Royal House of Savoy.

The male line of the armiger's family is of Scottish origin, from the area of Fife and Perthshire, Scotland. The armiger's family name is an anglicized derivation of "Dunmore" or "Dunsmore" and means "great hill fortress". Thus the Arms reflect a fortified hill and the three silver stars represent the Clan Murray which is one of the dominant clans in this region, to which the armiger belongs and which owes allegiance to the Dukes of Atholl as hereditary chiefs of the Clan. The flag flying from the castle with three golden wheat sheaves on a green background reflects the family's traditional association with the land and the countryside. The ship represents the armiger's family's movement over time within and service to the British Empire. The Tullibardine tartan is one of the tartans associated with the family's Clan and has been traditionally worn by the male line of the armiger's family. The mantling is in the black and gold colours which are the traditional livery colours used by the armiger's family.

The armiger, Douglas Warren Densmore, is the Lord of the Manor of Stratford St. Andrew and is a Commander of the Most Venerable Order of St. John and a Knight of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus. The armiger is a 32 degree mason and member of the Scottish Rite. He is a member of the Royal Order of Scotland, the Royal Over-Seas League in London and the English Speaking Union.

He has two sons: Andrew FitzDouglas Densmore, M.St.J., who is heir to the Lordship of Stratford St. Andrew, and Bradley Wythe Densmore.
