MottoFAIRE MON DEVOIR (To do my duty)

The red cross is an allusion to Mr Lawrence as a Governor of the Royal Society of St George. he Catherine Wheel is included because his livery company, the Worshipful Company of Carmen, was in its early days known as the fraternity of St Catherine. The tressure alludes to Mr Lawrence’s long association with the Heraldry Society. The demi-horse of the crest is another link to the Worshipful Company of Carmen, while the sprig of London Pride indicates that Mr Lawrence is a Londoner by birth and upbringing, a Freeman of the City of London and liveryman of the Scriveners Company. The staff held between the horse’s forelegs represents that which he carries as a ceremonial officer of the Order of St John of which he subsequently became Deputy Director of Ceremonies. Mr Lawrence is a Knight of Justice of the Order of St John.
