The Arms of Sergeant Major Douglas Mason Childs

In the tinctures of the shield the armiger chose to reflect his heritage, red white and blue being the colours of his country’s flag. These colours also reflect the countries of his family’s origin, namely: Ireland, England and France.

The charges upon the shield (crossed Axes or Halberds) were chosen to represent his vocation and also allude to the arms borne by the first Non Commissioned Officers of the United States of America and early European armies; representing the execution of military duty and protection of national values. The addition of a Torch signifies the light of faith, seeking knowledge, and truth. A Torch passed through the generations of his family. This symbol recognises the vocations of teacher, educator, and instructor which are common in the armiger’s family.

The armiger’s crest alludes to his faith in God which, as a Christian, compelled him to add the Greek “Chi-Rho” (Monogram of Christ) or Constantine’s “Labarum” (In Hoc Signo Vinces). This symbol was put on the crest to identify the pre-eminence of the faith in all that he does and identifies his religious heritage.

The Motto: “Semper Caelum Intuere” (Look Always to the Sky) was the personal motto of his father (from his hobby of astronomy) and expresses the eternal optimism of his spirit. This also recognised that through faith all things are possible, and the armiger’s belief in the second coming of Christ.

Sergeant Major Childs is a member of The American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Knights of Columbus, and The Honourable Order of Kentucky Colonels.
