I have now completed a “re-vamp” of my main heraldry site.  I have tried to improve the way the pages are linked together including this blog.

http://www.heraldry-online.org.uk/index.html

Whilst I tried to check each of the 250+ pages there is always a chance that I have missed something.  If anyone should find a broken link or missing images, please do let me know.
