    Nice coat of arms, Dram. I will have to look it up on the Bureau’s website so that I can see who you are ;-)
    I generally shy away from mantling gules turned argent, but since it repeats the livery colours (white in the mantling for ermine on the shield) it is actually appropriate.
    I would disagree, though, that the gold chevronels are cottises, since they are within the red chevron, rather than above and below. I think a better wording would be:

    Ermine, on a chevron between three fleurs de lis Gules, two chevronels gules above and below a heart Or, between two trefoils slipped Argent.

    Actually “above and below” is not the best heraldic wording, but it was all I could think of for the moment. However the proper wording ought to be part of the official blazon – would you post that?
    My arms were registered by the Bureau in 2012.
    Regards,
    Mike

    Quite an achievement. Congratulations! You are inspiring me to hurry up and complete my set of assumed arms. I see that your badge is on the Henderson tartan. Have you given any thought to designing your own personal tartan?

    Hi MacEanruig,

    Thank you. Many years ago (while I was a teenager) my first pipe teacher, a Henderson from Aberdeen, played a role much like a father to me. When he was alive he always insisted I wear his kilt, and when he passed amongst the many things he left me was his Henderson kilt. I've been wearing that tartan ever since. Despite my own ancestry and other clans that I would have a familial connection with, Henderson just fits! So although I wouldn't mind designing my own tartan, I am very comfortable with the Henderson sett.

    Hello Dram, can I ask how long the process took you with the Bureau of Heraldry in South Africa? The reason I ask it that I registered back in July 2014 with the Bureau and I'm still waiting for my initial preview of arms. Am I just unlucky or did yours take several months to complete???

    Cheers for the PM Dram....encouraging! I shall just have to be patient with the Bureau of Heraldry. I'm hoping they'll incorporate aspects of my assumed arms into their design to keep my arms thematic. Here is my assumed arms- [IMG][/IMG]

    My Pleasure. Nice arms! Of course SA will disallow the supporters, but I know you'll be happy with their guidance.

    Thank you, I paid an artist to create my ideas into a visual image.....I understand that Marcel Van Rossum has said he will look at transferring the supporters 'rampant' onto the shield perhaps holding up the Thistle proper. Although I would still like to keep at least one sackbut (ancient trombone) on the shield...
