Badge

The field of masoned bricks and the oak leaves recall the shield. The fountain pen nibs identify Mr. Brickwood as a collector of fountain pens and as a writer of history and historical fiction. The overall shape of the badge suggests the sun or a timepiece, a reference to the motto and to Mr. Brickwood’s collection of pocket watches.
