The chequy is a nod to the armiger's ancestral home of Paisley. It is also a nod to their law enforcement career. The Vert represents the colours of their home towns and the colour of New Zealand land. The Chevron symbolises the mountains of New Zealand as well as the armiger's life of military and law enforcement. The Cinquefoils represent hope and joy and are another nod to Paisley and the Eagle represents the armiger's role as a protector as a law enforcement officer. The hand and sun is the crest used by the Locheads as listed in Fairbairn 1905.
