ArmsPaly bendy sinister argent and gules, on a pale azure three lions rampant or.
CrestOn a wreath or, azure and gules a lion rampant gules winged or armed and langued azure holding in the dexter paw an arrow point downwards argent barbed and flighted gold.

The arms owe more to artistic design that to family background. Mr Wood wished to have lions and considered himself lucky to find a design that had not been recorded already. The paly bendy was again a distinctive pattern which took his fancy. The crest, standing on a tri-coloured wreath, also uses a lion, this time winged because Mr Wood used to fly, while the arrow records that he has been Master of the Worshipful Company of Bowyers and is a member of the Royal Toxophilite Society.
