Having a passion for history, especially that of the medieval period, inevitably drew Mr Harrison to heraldry. When he petitioned for arms he determined that these should have a medieval flavour. He was born in Warwickshire and the cross-crosslets refer to the arms of the County and they also hark back to the Beauchamp Earls of Warwick. When he was young, Mr Harrison moved to Lincoln and the fleur-de-lys appears on the city arms and on those of his school. Later, he left Lincoln to go to university and fleur-de-lys appeared on his college arms. Fleurs-de-lys and cross-crosslets are also his favourite heraldic charges. Mr Harrison wanted an animate crest and the dragon with a couped tail refers to his pet dog, Sian. She was a Welsh Pembroke Corgi.
