Re: Remigijus Bimba No.0419

For those who have absolutely no idea what Chris is talking about, I asked a question in another forum to ascertain the name of the cross as it was not obvious from the information provided by the armiger.

Sorry; indeed a crossover from elsewhere

Re: The Reverend Doctor Christian Dominic Boyd No.0452

Clean, simple design. Assuming the emblazonment represents his intentions, shouldn't the blazon note that the three crosses are erect or palewise? Ordinarily charges on a bend would be oriented bendwise unless otherwise specified... Crosses are always blazoned thus unless they are saltires of course.

Re: Graeme Justin Jolly No.0438

I should be interested to see an emblazonment with a heater shield instead of this eccentric one. I have my suspicions that it would be difficult to squeeze in all the elements in base.

Re: Claes Zangenberg, Baron of Pittenweem No.0431

As to the blazoning of the maunches as in chief , my feeling is that that would indicate that they should be shown in the top third of the shield. In both the emblazonments however they reach below half way. The inverted/transposed pile leaves space on either side that clearly needs to be filled and...

Re: Claes Zangenberg, Baron of Pittenweem No.0431

Friar says: "When a single pile issues from base (i.e. reversed or transposed) it should always be depicted in relief and narrower than the per chevron partition with which it may be confused." Boutell merely says that a pile may issue from the base, which is less helpful. I don't always go along wi...

You seem to have your work cut out! As for your comment: The more I've learned about heraldry the more dubious these arms appear, but who knows? I agree.

Re: Robert Garrett Jackson, Baron of Paistoun No.0427

When discussing my proposed arms with the then York Herald, Conrad Swan, I was keen that the crest should be something that an armourer could have made without resort to papier-maché or painted board.

Re: Robert Garrett Jackson, Baron of Paistoun No.0427

Lord Lyon's Office clearly holds with the principle that anything goes when it comes to crests. How on earth anyone could float a trefoil between the stag's horns is beyond me. Is it supposed to be suspended by fishing line from the tines? If a trefoil was required in the crest, surely it could have...

Re: DUCALLY GORGED

The blazon does not enlighten us much. The arms are traditional rather than "Victorian". The talbot breed of dogs seems to have died out at the end of the 18th century, so perhaps the arms are older (though of course one may use an image of an extinct dog just as one may use the image of a mythical ...

Re: DUCALLY GORGED

Could you provide the text of the Burke's entry for Aber. That may help us with the identity of the Aber family. Boutell has quite a lot to say on ducal/crest coronets (pp 155-156). I doubt that heraldic authorities would today allow a grant that described such a coronet as "ducal". As to a talbot (...

Re: Dr. George arrthers No.0424

Not "arrthers" I think!

I wonder if one can really blazon St Michael and the beast as "proper". Neither the one nor the other actually exists so there is no means of telling what "proper" might be. One would never blazon an unicorn "proper", but a roedeer could be proper.

I thank Dr Burden for his measured response to my somewhat impertinent dismissal of the accuracy of his motto.

Re: The Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland

On doing a wee search I just noticed that they also use the arms in "black and white" which although this is often done, I would suggest the way they have done it is incorrect. Incorrect in that the field should be black and the "pots" and thistle white? That would make the black flamingo largely i...
