Detail of the Arms

The motto is Keep faith, in English and Gaelic

Seal of the Clarenceaux King of Arms

The Arms cost my father £81/10/-. At the time my father was attending a course at the Imperial Staff College at Aldershot, England, and we were living in Camberley. I have a book containing receipts of my mother's and, by way of comparison, at about the same time she paid £51/9/- for a fur coat, £21/-/- for an Electrolux vacuum cleaner in a polished wooden box (which seems very high by today's standards) and £102/5/5, including registration and insurance, for a Morris Major Saloon.

In 1939 blocks of land in East Brighton, Australia (the suburb where I live) were advertised at £5/-/-. My mother employed a live-in mothercraft nurse, who went to England with us, and I think she was paid £1/7/6 a week.
