Re: Robert Taylor Koehler No. 0412

Before Christmas I was discussing with my first TA Company Commander my petition for a heraldic badge. He suggested a Pascal Lamb as a nod to the The Queen's Royal Surrey Regiment (aka The Mutton Lancers) which was one of founding Regiments of The Queen's Regiment (now in turn part of the PWRR).

Online Heraldic Resources

I have unashamedly snaffled a post made by James Dempster back in January 2009 at the American Heraldry Society's forum. James provided a list of and links to various heraldry books that have been scanned and made available online. I have managed to add a couple more. The list is at: Online Heraldic...

I am always in awe of those who can produce achievements with pen & paint. I am very dependent upon the manipulation of clipart.
