How to Acquire English and Scottish Arms

NY G&B Society, 36 West 44th Street, Suite 711. Manhattan
Admission is free and open to the public. Perhaps a wee dram of something after the talk ...

Presenters: John Shannon and Paul Campbell
Both speakers are armigers. John Shannon is the chairman of the committee as well as the president of the College of Arms Foundation and acquired arms from the College of Arms in London.

Paul Campbell, a member of the Heraldry Society of Scotland, acquired arms for his father from the Court of Lord Lyon in Edinburgh, and is an expert on Campbell arms, or which there are many variants. Just learned that Paul will bring a full-sized color reproduction of his father's grant! Pictured: Letters Patent, John McConville Shannon.
