The Arms of Colonel Douglas Evan Solberg-Bell

The bells honour early colonial Bell and Beall armigers, amongst whom it was a common charge. The chevron represents the Solberg, a prominent geographical feature near Tvedestrand, Norway, from which an ancestor of the armiger's wife hailed. The Viking axes represent the warrior heritage of both families. The two ravens of the crest and badge symbolize Huginn and Muninn, the spies of the Norse god Odin, the All-Father.

The armiger is formerly of the 284th Military Police Company and of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 162d Infantry Regiment, United States Army. He is a Reverend Colonel of the Universal Life Church of Jackson Bottom (ordained Reverend 7th June 2001; raised Reverend Colonel 22nd July 2002), and has had the honour of joining over a dozen couples in marriage over the past decade.

Thomas Brooke, MP for Whitchurch, Hants; his father-in-law Sir Thomas Foster, Justice of the Common Pleas under James I; and through the latter, a line stretching back to include the de Umfravilles (Earls of Angus until Bannockburn), the Comyns (Earls of Buchan), the de Quincys (Earls of Winchester), the de Beaumonts (Earls of Leicester), Fergus of Galloway, and the Capet dynasty of France. They include a surety for the Magna Carta, an advisor to King John at the same event, and a number of largely unsuccessful Crusaders.
