For the sword one might have been side-tracked into using an ornate sabre or foil but ours is not a fencing club, it is a military history society and as such is better represented by a simple Roman-type sword which does not set a particular period in history.
The pens are, of course, the symbolic goose quills with white flights, cut ready for use. The sword is silver and gold, and the whole design shows up well on a ground of dark navy, thus limiting the colours to four.
The Scroll bears the name of the Society in both languages, the English version being the S.A. Military History Society, it having been decided earlier that the word "History" was to be preferred to "Historical" in denoting the aims of the Society. In Afrikaans we have it as Die S.A. Krygshistoriese Vereniging.
