Per pale argent and lozengy azure and argent a stag springing and a chief azure.

This is a resubmission. Previous sumission returned in August 2013 by Kingdom.

"Cellach macCormaic - New Device Change - Quarterly argent and lozengy argent and azure, two stags springing azure.

Returned for appearance of marshaling. Because it would be possible, barring conflict, to register, "Lozangy argent and azure," this device has the appearance of marshaling the arms "Argent, a stag springing azure," with the arms "Lozengy argent and azure" thus violating SENA A.6.F Claims through Marshalling (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#A6F).

Additionally it is being returned for violating SENA A.3.B.3.c: "Elements Divided Quarterly or Per Saltire: Elements divided quarterly or per saltire may use any two tinctures or furs, as long as they do not share a base tincture." (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#A3B3a). The "lozengy argent and azure" quarters of the shield shares a base tincture with the "argent" quarters. The argent in one of one set of quarters would need to be changed to Or to be registerable."

11: Hakon Hrafnsson -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Middle LoI of February 23, 2014 as submitted.

Paly argent and vert, on a lozenge Or a raven sable.

This is a resubmission. The original, "Chevronny of eight argent and vert, a raven close sable." was returned in the February 2014 ILoAR.

Device returned for conflict with Ciothruadh Dubh (reg. 02/2012 via Caid), "(Fieldless) A raven maintaining a spear bendwise sable," with a DC for the field but none for the maintained charge. It also conflicts with the device of Serlo of Litchfield, Gyronny gules and Or, a vulture close sable. There is a DC for the change of field, but nothing for the difference between a vulture and a raven, both regular-shaped birds.


12: Middle, Kingdom of the -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in of at some point,

(Fieldless) An oak leaf bendwise Or.


13: Middle, Kingdom of the -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in of at some point,

Azure, sinister gauntlet aversant argent charged on the cuff with a mullet azure.

This is a resubmission. Original returned in the Middle 3/2014 ILoAR.

"Middle, Kingdom of the - New Badge - Azure, a sinister gauntlet argent. - Returned for presumption with Isengard, Sable, a hand argent. Important non-SCA arms. There are a few of related precedents:

Hands and gauntlets are considered as equivalent charges for determining difference... "[w]e give no difference between a hand and a gauntlet" [Brian Brock, 5/99, R-Atenveldt.]

Aaron MacGregor. Device. Per bend bendy argent and gules and sable, a sinister hand argent.

Conflict with Kenric Manning, Lozengy azure and Or, a hand argent, registered September, 2000. There is not a CD between a dexter hand and a sinister hand, therefore there is only a single CD for the change to the field. (10/2000)

There is no difference between a dexter and a sinister hand. [Elspeth Flannagann, 12/2002, R-Atenveldt]

There is a DC for the field but none for it being a gauntlet vs. a hand or whether it is a right or left hand. Since the conflict is with non-SCA arms it falls under of the armory presumption rules in SENA."


14: Mordred Weekes -New Name & New Device

Per fess gules and sable, in pale a gauntlet grasping a sheaf of four arrows and a lymphad argent.

Submitter desires a masculine name.

Mordred, in this spelling, appears seven times in Le morte Arthur, a romance in stanzas of eight lines; re-edited from ms. Harley 2252, in the British museum; with introduction, notes, glossary, and index of names, by J. Douglas Bruce. (London: K. Paul, Trench, Trübner for the Early English Text Society, 1903), and 149 times in Malory, Le Morte Darthur (London: David Nutt, 1889). Since Mordred is the name of a prominent character in a major medieval literary work, it is registerable under the literary names allowance. [Stolen from OSCAR]

Weekes: heading of Weeks, Weekes John Weekes married Isabel Partin in London 1571
