Re Chris' comments -

"I am very surprised that the CHA allowed a Secondary School supporters."

I have noticed that the Canadian authorities seem happy to grant supporters to non-personal grantees almost automatically (even commercial businesses), but, restrict supporters to personal grantees to only those of a higher level within Canadian society.

I have often wondered at the anomaly.

The College of Arms has somewhat convoluted rules regarding supporters. THe CHA seems to largely follow them, but not entirely. This thread is not, I think the place to discuss entitlement to supporters as a subject. I'll start a new thread later.
