Laurel LoPaD dated 2023-08-14

To all the College of Arms and all others who may read this missive, from Emma Laurel, Elisabetta Pelican, and Iago Wreath, greetings.

This letter contains the issues raised in the June 2023 LoAR for CoA discussion. The text in this letter is copied verbatim from that LoAR; it is provided here for convenience. As with an August 2023 LoI, these matters are currently scheduled for the Pelican and Wreath meetings in November 2023. Original commentary, responses, and rebuttals to commentary must be entered into OSCAR no later than Tuesday, October 31, 2023.

1: Orabella Swanby - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2023, via Ealdormere.

Sable, a double rose Or and purpure barbed vert, seeded Or, a chief argent

This device is pended to allow commentary on the correct artwork. The emblazon that appeared in the LoI is not on the correct shield shape, and no replacement was made, as required by the Administrative Handbook:

If an emblazon image is completely incorrect, it may be replaced within seven days of the publication of the Letter of Intent with a correction noting the replacement. After seven days or if the correction is a redraw of th e original emblazon, the associated armorial item should be withdrawn using a correction to the original item an d then resubmitted on a new Letter of Intent.

Submission heralds are reminded that emblazons in OSCAR must match the emblazons on forms. See the Cover Letter for more details.

This was item 6 on the Ealdormere letter of March 13, 2023.


Pray know that I remain,

In service,

Emma de Fetherstan
Laurel Queen of Arms
