The Blazon, for those who are interested -

Shield – Gules fretty Argent on a chief wavy Bleu Celeste a rising sun Or.
Mantling – Parted per pale to dexter Bleu Celeste doubled Or and to sinister Gules doubled Argent.
Torse – Or Bleu Celeste Or Gules Argent Gules.
Crest – Rising out of a band pierced by 6 fleur-de-lys (3 showing) set with 4 maple leaves (3 showing) between 4 thunderbolts Argent enflamed Proper (2 showing) a griffin Bleu Celeste beaked legged winged and ermined in the hind quarters Or armed and langued Gules clutching in the dexter talon an Indian 24 spoke Wheel of Life Azure and in the sinister a Royal Air Force roundel Proper.
Motto – Stand and be Counted

Symbolism -

Fleur-de-lys - I was a member of the Scout Association from age 8 - Wolfcub (Bronze, Silver and Gold Arrows, Leaping Wolf); Boy Scout (2nd Class, 1st Class, Senior Scout, Patrol Leader, Bushman's Thong); Phadfinder (in Germany); Queen's Scout; Assistant Scout Leader; Scout Leader; Group Scout Leader.
Maple Leaves - My formative years in Canada.
Thunderbolts - Traditional symbol for electricity. I am a Qualified Electrician.
Indian 24 spoke Wheel of Life - The symbol of India, the land of my birth and where my ancestors lived for almost 400 years.
Royal Air Force roundel Proper - 12 years service in the RAF. I saw active service in Northern Ireland and on Falkland Island during the war.
The Griffin - A mythical beast, in Bleu Celeste for my Air Force career.
And finally my motto - Stand and be Counted - because I believe that it is our duty as a citizen and a human being to stand up for what we believe in.

I must thank John for his drawing skills and artwork and Richard for his input.
Regards

Chas Charles-Dunne
