Current officer Domhnall na Moicheirghe
Held office since August 2010


Under the Lochac Heraldic Policy, Rocket Herald is deputy to Crux Australis Herald and has delegated responsibility for the registration of names and armoury. The duties of Rocket Herald are set out in the Crux Duty Statement.

History of the Office

The office of Rocket Pursuivant was created in January 1993 with responsibility for external commentary (commentary on submissions to the College of Arms from other Kingdoms).

After Decion ap Dyfrwr Trefriw's period in office, the title lay vacant until November 1999, when it was used by Mistress Aislinn de Valence after stepping down from Crux Australis Herald into a role as drop-dead deputy and reviewing the Pursuivant Extraordinary exam. In June 2001, Mistress Aislinn stepped down as drop-dead deputy but retained the Rocket Pursuivant title and the PE exam role until November 2003, when it was briefly used for a role in publishing the Lochac College of Herald's newsletter, CAMEL.

After a restructure of the heraldic roster in August 2004, the title of Rocket Pursuivant was held by Giles de Roet in his role designing tokens for the new Kingdom's awards.

In September 2006, the role of Rocket Herald (newly promoted from Pursuivant) took over submissions from Baryl Herald, who became drop-dead deputy.
