Sorry guys, I still occasionally suffer from British Blazon Disorder.
The blazon should be: Per chevron argent and azure, two griffins segreant addorsed in chief azure and a garb in base Or.
The griffins are on the white part of the field and are blue. The garb is on the blue part of the field and is Or.
Sorry about the blazon-fu.

I'm probably wrong as it is past my bed time but...
Isn't there a problem with metal on metal? The way I
read it is that the charges are all Or (gold)and half
of the field is Argent (silver).
