Please join me in congratulating Master Gawain of Miskbridge and HL Caoimhin McKee on their recent promotions to the rank of Herald Extraordinary. Caoimhin was recognized at Twelfth Night, and Gawain was officially recognized this past weekend at the commentary meeting at his home in Shadowdale.
A Herald Extraordinary is a senior herald who has greatly served the kingdom College of Heralds and/or the SCA College of Arms and has achieved the highest level of competence in heraldry. This is not an award, and carries no precedence. But among heralds, it’s a really big deal. Huzzah!
