The armiger is a Justice of the High Court. The baker’s peels (or paddles) in the arms represent the three generations of bakers from whom he is descended, whilst the two swords represent his service as a judge in both the courts and tribunals. The crest reflects the fact that he has served as both Designated Civil Judge for Wales and now as Queen’s Bench Division Liaison Judge for Wales. The badge reflects the armiger’s surname (derived from “oak”) and the family interest in Welsh music. He sang for many years with the London Welsh Male Voice Choir and three of his children sing with the Llandaff Cathedral Choir.
