" A dexter Arm issuing
out of clouds fesswise proper habited Gules,
holding in the hand also proper an Armillary Sphere Or. "
The definition (not the image) was given to me by letter
by herald Mr William G Hunt of the College of Arms, London, England
There are other very similar engravings of this
crest which also include :
SEMPER IN MOTU
( "Always in Motion" or "Perpetual Motion" )
If John Field's actual crest had included this slogan how appropriate
have been, instrumental as he was in bringing to
the Copernican view of the Solar System.
