[Carl Dale Pritchett

Arms: Per fess wavy Sable and barry wavy of six pieces Argent and the First in chief a crescent of the Second.

Crest: On a wreath Argent and Sable upon a craggy rock Proper a wolf statant at cry Argent.

Mantling: Gules doubled Argent.

Mottoes: MEMINI and above the shield DEA VOCEM AUDI.

Badge: On an ogress fimbriated Argent a raven of the Last.

Granted: Chief Herald of Ireland, 10th December 2005, Volume Z, Folio 63.

The tinctures of the arms allude to my family's Irish Quaker roots in 17th century Lurgan, Ireland. The wolf in the crest references a nickname as well as the use in some Dicson arms of a werewolf statant as a charge (my paternal grandmother being a Dicson and the family historian and story teller).

The motto is MEMINI (Remember). The motto above the shield, DEA VOCEM AUDI (Goddess Hear My Voice), associates the wolf in the crest with the crescent in the arms.

The emblazonment is from a library painting by the heraldic artist, Marco Foppoli
