Design rationale

The red and sky blue field represent the armiger's Army and Air Force service.The gold martlets come from the Arms of Brighton and Sussex, England his birthplace and the Cherub comes from the Arms of Trinity College of Music London.The Crwth (pronounced "crooth") is an ancient Welsh bowed Lyre which was used to accompany the Welsh bards and is a reference to his Welsh ancestry and his interest and involvement in music.The Dragon's Wings in the crest and the Leek, another Welsh symbol, are further reference to his ancestry and the red roses refer to Lancashire, his father's birthplace. The Golden Wattle is an allusion to the Arms of Australia. The motto "Persevere" comes from the Arms of the London College of Music. The two horns in the Badge are simply a symbol of music and the cord can be seen as a baldrick linking the two horns, rather in the way that the Tudors linked their initials with a decorative knot. The trefoil is a reference to the Arms of the 7th Marquess of Bristol from whom he succeeded to the Lordship of the Manor of Holdingham in Lincolnshire.
