MottoFIDES ET RATIO (Faith and Reason)
The tincture murrey is derived from the arms of the former University of Wales, of which the armiger is a triple graduate. Murrey is also the colour of Dr Woolf’s University of Wales PhD robe and hood. The boar’s head is the badge of RAF Squadron 501 in which Dr Woolf’s late maternal grandfather, a fighter pilot in WWII, flew Spitfires and Tempests. The fleur de lys, white rose and mullet celebrate a number of strong Marian influences associated with the armiger and his family.
