Armstrong
Micheil Joseph Armstrong of Mungbyhurst

Arms : Argent, three pallets Azure, on a chief Gules a lion passant Or between two roses of the first.

Crest : a salmon fessways Proper alighting thereon a sea eagle also Proper.

Motto : ARMATUS CUM OPPORTUNITATE

Granted : Lyon Court, 9th December 1997, Volume 78, Folio 111.

The pallets Azure and Argent are the traditional style of the former chiefs of Armstrong. The lion passant represents my love of Rhodesia where I spent my formative years & saw active service. The roses are for my commitment to masonry.

My crest is a Scottish Sea Eagle which is symbolic of my love of the sport of salmon fishing and the motto translates to " armed with opportunity"

Mungbyhurst is south of Langholm in Dumfriesshire on the east bank of the River Esk on the site of ancient Armstrong stronghold of Mungby Tower.
