Here's something I came across and thought that it might be a good blazoning exercise -

Re: 19th Century Gold Seal Ring

Once I had a name, I checked Rolland's Rietstap and found this:

British Railways, as was, supposedly was never granted arms.

World Heraldry Day

I would just like to remind all members that the 10th of June is World Heraldry Day.

It will never be as big as the St Patrick's Day parade in New York City - but we can hope!
