The grated silver helmet, in profile, is indicative of princely status.
In the instance of the helmet, the committee borrowed from the New Jersey State Seal which shows a grated gold helmet in direct view and which is significant of sovereignty.
We are particularly pleased by the way this has gone from strength to strength since 2008, when we helped secure a treasure trove of Gloucester Rugby memorabilia dating back to the 19th century.
And we're delighted, too, that the Heritage Lottery Fund has choosen this as one of their featured projects.
We also promote and participate in the heritage of the historic county of Gloucestershire by organising outings, for example our recent Mystery Tour, meetings and discussions, holding seminars & other events - and enjoying ourselves at an annual social evening.
Many members also enjoy the opportunities and training that the archives provide for their volunteers. ), we hope you find interest and enjoyment in your membership.
For an introduction to the project please see this page.And we have an impressive track record of over 18 marriages and 24 babies born as a result of the couples who met through the campaign!So now we have brought our successful formula on-line to offer you, wherever you live, the chance to connect with like-minded country lovers.We help protect archives by buying records that come up for sale, where they may be at risk or if they would enhance Gloucestershire Archives' collections - if we can afford to do so ourselves or with the help of other local groups (for example the plans of the 1st and 2nd Gloucester Lunatic Asylums.We also raise funds towards the purchase of larger or more important collections.
