Chris I've just realised who you are; Yes you are correct and it cost me six shillings for egg bacon and beans cos I went on about it for weeks how expensive London was; I was sat with Roger Chalkley on the bus;

I had to get to Sharlston on the pit bus.

I was all kitted out in blue and white. I got as few mucky lucks from blokes who were going to spend the day in the bowels of the earth and couldn't go to the game themselves.

so this isn't crested ware then ? and where the hell did this coat of arms come from ?

the word crest is used in other contexts. That's a very interesting object, tell me more.

On a coat of arms you have a shield, the field of the shield is the way the design is laid out. On top of that you have the helm, on top of that is the crest-fevs consists of the prince wales feathers and those arrows. Draped from the hem are if I remember rightly vestments. The ones on Rovers COA are 'slashed', all that wavy stuff. It means that the bearer of the arms has been battles. At the side of the shield are the supporters-Lions rampant in this case, then at the bottom is the motto.

the design on the field represents agriculture, coal mining, the three ridings of yorkshire. I'm not sure about the lion-it could be something to do with the lord of thre manor-lord St Oswald or something like that.

there serves you right :biggrin:

Reminisce Phil. I love this "living history" stuff from a different era. Tales of all things rovers from a time when the world looked a different place I find fascinating!

I was only 6 in 67 when we won the cup so tales of the day make happy reading.

it's what they call crested ware, turn of the century, made by a firm called arcadian china, most famous firm making it was Goss, and it's a really small version of a cheese dish, why ?, i have no idea

The way Paul is going we might as well have a plain white shirt next season. By the time he gets all the sponsors on there'll be no room for a design. :biggrin:

Well done Paul
