There’s a well-done if a little dated (April 1, 2010) little article over on the website of The Daily Express about the College of Arms, and what fees they charge, and why, and where those fees go. Plus a few little tidbits of stories about how “eminent” a person has to be to obtain a grant of arms from the College, how a badger with a hay rake looks better than a badger with a word processor, why a surgeon received a grant with a large intestine on it, and how the Institute of Engineers in Australia got blue kangaroos.
Want to know how much the heralds really get paid to create a coat of arms? Drop on by the Express’s website and check it out for yourself: http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/166469
