Suggested White Scarf/Guildmaster of Defense text

These are the traditional Western scroll texts.  Feel free to devise your own, however please make sure that it includes the following critical elements:

  • The award given
  • Name of the award recipient (if the name is not registered, insert “known as” in front of the use name)
  • The first names of the Sovereign and Consort who gave the award
  • The realm in which the award was given
  • The date the award was given

If the recipient wants their *registered* arms on the scroll:

  • The blazon (the official words describing the registered arms)
  • The emblazon (the picture of the registered arms)
  • Note that Grants and Patents of arms often include “achievements” (helms, mantles/acanthus, torse/coronet/cap, crests, supporters, compartment and/or mottos)
