>From what Alisoun said earlier, you are correct.  The Crown and Kingdom
Seneshal would be the ones involved in releasing the armory of a defunct
group.  At the time all this occurred, I don't think I was even a cornet 
so I have never seen or heard of this occurring before.  This is good info
to have, though.

Lost Cavern got registered in the early eighties--give 'em a break.  8^)
Depending on when this armorial release occurred, Lost Caverns might
have still been active.  I think it was dissolved right before I began
playing in Atlantia which would have been in 1990 or 1991.  I am also
well aware that the name is not remotely period.  I hope I didn't give the
impression that anyone had a hope of reclaiming the name....The
armory isn't too bad--except for one of the badges.  I guess we can get
the name and armory released now that someone has brought it to
our attention.
