Sayyidah Khalidah bint Yahya'a

castle@outlandsheralds.org



Unto the Outlands College of Heralds, our respected friends and colleagues who give freely of their time to provide commentary, and all others who come by these letters, on this 7th day of November, A.S. XLVIII (2013 CE), does Sayyidah Khalidah bint Yahya'a send greetings on behalf of Baron Randal Carrick, White Stag Principal Herald.

It would assist Castle Herald greatly in the future if you would e-mail a copy of the documentation summary for name submissions along with the paper copies. It saves having to re-type everything again. Also, please be sure that you include dates of registration and return for armory for previously registered names and resubmissions of any kind. If Castle can't find where an item was returned, it may be pended until the information is provided or payment is made for a new submission.

Here follows the Kingdom of the Outlands' Letter of Presentation for November 2013. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Errors found herein are my sole responsibility. Anyone may comment upon the items found herein, and e-mail commentary to the herald's commentary list is encouraged. Please have comments on items contained herein to Rampart Herald by December 15, 2013, for the decision meeting tentatively scheduled for December 18, 2013. As a reminder, the College of Arms requests commentary on all items, including appeals.

1: Gerald Beckett -Resub Device

{This device must be returned both for style and conflict issues. Style: Per precedent, this line of division is too low to be "Per cheveron" and too high to be a "Point Pointed". 50% of the chevron should be above the per fess line, 50% below. Conflicts: Because this is displayed, it must be checked against all Eagles. Therefore there are multiple conflicts. Some are: Francesca of Bright Angel (reg. 01/1973), "Azure, a dove displayed, head elevated argent"; Este, House of (reg. 12/1994 via Laurel), "Azure, an eagle displayed argent crowned Or."; Nemanjici, Kings of Serbia (reg. 05/2002 via the West), "Gules, a double-headed eagle crowned argent."; Poland (reg. 12/1994 via Laurel), "Gules, an eagle displayed argent crowned Or."; John of Ean Airgead, called the Mad Celt (reg. 10/1979 via Meridies), "Vert, a chimney swift migrant palewise argent.
