MottoNULLA ROSA SINE SPINIS (No rose without thorns)

The three red roses of Lancaster symbolise the armiger's birthplace and maternal family connections. The two crescents are taken from arms recorded in The Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland (24th page of the 66th volume) which were granted in memory of his deceased paternal grandfather. The leopard's face reflects the armiger's appointment as a Consultant and Honorary Senior Lecturer at Guy's Hospital, London. The serpent of the crest is traditionally associated with the power of healing and the golden morphia poppy head symbolises the control of pain and anxiety. The motto 'no rose without thorns' alludes to the armiger's experience that significant achievements do not always come easily.
