In the December 1996 Letter of Acceptances and Returns, the then-Shire, now Barony of Granite Mountain's name was both accepted and returned. An erratum in the March 1997 Letter of Acceptances and Returns stated that the branch name was returned for lack of a valid petition. As we have a valid petition in the files, this erratum was incorrect. The branch name should have been accepted at that time.
Registered in November 2011 as Per bend Or and azure, in bend sinister an axe and an axe inverted addorsed bendwise, and a fleur-de-lys Or, the tincture of the axes was missing.
The branch name designator was inadvertently changed from Canton to Shire on the submission form. The error was missed upon registration of this badge in October 2014.
