Submitter is willing to accept 'Conrad Wind Horn' (late period English culture, constructed with given name + byname + byname).

8: Meridies, Kingdom of -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 1979, via Meridies.

Argent, on a pale betressed sable a rapier inverted argent.

Prior submission, Argent, on a pale betressed sable a rapier inverted argent, was returned by Laurel in July 2017.

Must be returned for further work. This device is returned for violating SENA A2C1 which requires that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms and in a period armorial style." The hilt of this rapier appears to be a hand-bell design not unlike a modern saber. The quillons and knucklebow which define the rapier as a heraldic charge are absent. No evidence was presented, and none found in commentary, demonstrating that this guard is period either as a heraldic charge or an artifact. Absent such evidence, the design is returned for a redraw.
