Re: Change of Registration Fees

Without images, just blazons, are still free? Cliff, we have never simply recorded just the blazon. The whole point of each registration is that it provided a full colour record online with the aim, eventually, that the entries will be published in book form. Copies of all publications (books) are ...

Re: Alan Wells No.0493

Rampart - noted and deleted. As for the mantling, whilst we did ask the armiger if he REALLY wanted his mantling to be pink and black (along with explanation of tincture conventions etc) he simply chose to ignore the question/advice. So, we must assume these are his chosen livery colours which are n...

Re: Hamilton Vs Lyon

Here is an update: In the week before the case was due to be heard Counsel for both sides came to the conclusion that the one day booked for the hearing would not be sufficient to hear the case to its conclusion; thus Thursday 9th was also booked. However, come 4.00 pm on Friday Mrs Hamilton's QC, w...

In order to quote, you don't need the forward slash at the beginning, just at the end part.

Now I see the context of the question about the cross.
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.

None of this of course affects the basic design/blazon. When John finds the time, he will use the new image to update the entry in The R...

I suspect that "equilateral cross" is a so-called Greek cross - couped arms of equal length (thus "equilateral") that do not extend to or touch any of the sides of the shield.

Bit that's just my guess..
It would help if the "herald" used heraldic terms!

Not exactly sure what, in heraldic terms an equilateral cross is except that if taken literally it would be a cross of equal dimensions. There is a list of heraldic crosses here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crosses_in_heraldry The basic heraldic cross (the default if there are no additional specif...

There is to be an amendment to this entry quite soon. When the armiger first submitted his application the image appeared to be cut off at the wreath (sans crest) and indeed, he had omitted to include any blazon for the crest however, both John and I recalled seeing the arms somewhere before and we ...

Re: Patrick Michael Dipper No.0455

Agreed; but "Proper" gives the artist a broader license to use, say, a golden-brown which after all is closer to the "natural color." Hmm. This is being too pernickety in my opinion but I don't think it worth prolonging the debate since we are actually broadly in agreement. I just like simple, unco...
