Notes : The motif showing the King's battle honours includes the initials RH - possibly for Hancock as above, and there is also an anchor at the base of the cannon's breech which is the 'rebus' for Richard Holdship, Worcester's transfer-printing guru; there is, however, another school of thought which suggests that both RH and the anchor combined signify Holdship, and that Hancock's work was singled out by the further inclusion of a cockerel device, so be aware that this distinction is not - well - black and white...
