Coat of Arms

I am little late for SoCS but I was out and about yesterday and came back home late to watch a movie ‘Five Card Stud (1968)’, which was amazing and we enjoyed every minute of it. If you are a fan of Western Classics, you should see this. Robert Mitchum reminded me of Amjad Khan (a Bollywood actor). And by the end of it, I was exhausted to even try and login to WordPress. But better late than never ๐Ÿ˜‰

I did post once about the various pubs in and around London I had seen with the word ‘Arms’ in it. My husband who has been here for close to 25 years wasn’t sure if that was a thing when I asked about him last May. Now I have got him looking for those pubs with the word ‘Arms’ in it to add it to our ‘list’ (totally imaginary ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) We do get excited when we see one more. The characteristics of such pubs are a) they are at the junction of two roads (except for one, which I don’t remember the name now) b) they have a coat of arms symbol displayed, each of them unique c) they all have some lord’s names associated with them or at least that is what I think if those regency novels are to go by. It could be place names too (e.g. Devonshire, Oxford, Hawley, Harwood etc)

Whatever might be the history behind it, I find it a very amusing thing to look out for ๐Ÿ™‚

    I believe it has something to do with a “coat of arms” and is somewhat family related.
