The Armigers arms are a
variation on the Neilson arms previously registered with the Lyon
Court, in particular the two hands couped in chief. The division per
fess dansetty is an allusion to his father's profession as a dental
surgeon. The use of the sanguine stain refers to the Armigers
profession as a haematology specialist. The pheons in base refer to
his career in the Royal Army Medical Corps.
The crest relates to the Armigers
ownership and love of red setters and the motto, 'Vite ut Vitas' ,
live life to the fullest, is from Horace.
