The submitter stated she would be sending a new emblazon. The new form had not been received by Golden Dolphin by publication of the September LoI. Golden Dolphin is returning the augmentation so the submitter can send in the final emblazon that she would like registered.

Per chevron azure and vert between three dragonflies argent a tower overall argent masoned sable

Device Submission History:
November 2016 Atlantian return of "Per chevron azure and vert, a tower between three dragonflies argent"

This device was returned for a redraw, for violating the guidelines set forth on the May 2011 Cover Letter for a properly drawn per chevron field division; the field division here is too low. Please see that Cover Letter for further discussion and details of how to properly draw per chevron lines of division.

6: Hazel of Foxedene -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2015, via Atlantia.

Purpure, on a mountain issuant from base between in chief two natural dolphins haurient respectant argent, a dragon passant regardant purpure

Device Submission History:
November 2016 Laurel Return of "Purpure, on a mountain of two peaks between in chief two natural dolphins haurient respectant argent, a dragon passant regardant purpure"

This device was returned for using a mountain issuant from base as primary charge, which repeated precedents cite as a cause for return.

This depiction of a mountain, which crosses the center line, is sufficient reason for return. Precedent states:

As noted in the LoAR of September 1993, p. 10, "mountains, as variants of mounts, should be emblazoned to occupy no more than the lower portion of the field". As in the emblazon here the mountain is sufficiently high so as to immediately be thought of as a per chevron field by most of the commenters and everyone at the Laurel meeting, there are multiple conflicts with "[Field], a rose Or". This needs at the very least to be redrawn so it is identifiable as a mountain rather than a field division. [Tara of Montrose, 04/94]

[Haraldr hlátr drengr, LoAR of May 2008]

In the absence of new evidence of this being a period design, it is still not registerable.

The use of the mountain as a primary charge is grandfather to the submitter's father, Jonathas Reinisch "Azure, on a mountain argent a fox's head couped gules." The emblazon of Jonathas Reinisch's device is attached below and the submitter has submitted attestation for the grandfather clause.

I, <legal name redacted>, known in the SCA as Master Jonathas Reinisch, do attest that <legal name redacted>, known in the SCA as Hazel of Foxedene, is my legal child. I understand that this letter cannot be withdrawn once their name or armory is registered.
