Mr Mander uses a differenced version of the Mander arms; the embattled bordure alluding to his career in the construction industry. The crest contains more family and personal allusions. The springbok refers to Mr Manders time at Witwatersrand University, while the tinctures of the horns are suggestive of the goat’s horns of the Cordwainer’s Company of which Mr Mander was Master. The colours of the horns are those of the German flag and refer to his wife’s native land. Finally, the millrind refers to Lincoln’s Inn, where his forbears were located professionally for a century and once again to Mr Mander’s career as a civil engineer and to his interest in industrial archaeology.
