Alfredo - the above is not correct. The custom is usually fairly well
adhered to that people w/o AoA's are not permitted to bear arms into the
presence of TRM's or TRH's. Adhered to in court, anyway.
Actually, it isn't referring to the ability to display a particular set
of arms, either - many people that get AoA's don't have registered arms.
The College of Heralds passes it, you can display it, whether you have an
AoA or not.
