Lochac LoI - 2012-04-28

This item was on the 07-2012 LoAR

4: James Yale - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2012, via Lochac

Gyronny sable and gules, a cross of St Julian Or

This device is submitted as a documented exception to Rule VIII.2.b.iv (i.e. the Rule of Tincture for multi-part fields). Thanks to Batonvert Herald for supplying the examples below.

Three examples of charged gyronny sable and gules can be found in Insignia Anglica, a mid-16th century English roll, BSB Cod.Icon 291, found online at:

Additionally, the arms of the Worshipful Company of Coopers, of London, granted 1509, use a gyronny gules and sable field. (Bromley & Child's "Armorial Bearings of the Guilds of London", p.55)

All of these examples are significantly more complex than the submission. We hope that complex examples are allowed as documentation for a simpler design.
