 This is the coat of arms of Sir Martin Farndale.

The red zig zag within the shield is based on the Royal Artillery colours and tie.

 

It has the white rose of Yorkshire in its centre.

 

The sheaths of corn denote Martin’s birth and early years on the prairie in Canada. He was born in Trochu, Alberta.

 

The chestnut horse depicts the Chestnut Troop, First Regiment Royal Horse Artillery, who he commanded.

 

The daffodil depicts the valley of Farndale, renown for its daffodils.

The motto is the motto used by Farndales for several generations, dictum meum pactum – his word is his bond.
