The Sealed Knot Coat of Arms
...part of Independent Parliament in the Army of Parliament
Uniform Coat Colour: buff-coats,,dark green sleeves, black breeches
The Trayne has a core battery of three guns, a minion called Bellona(Goddess of War), a bastard-falconet;Locust (who devours all before it) and Arnie, also a minion in NMA grey.
These are supplemented at musters by regimental cannon such as Gerards' "fire-dragon".

Our Colour (see regimental identifier) is based on the notebook in the PRO of the Lieutenant-General of the Parliamentarian Ordnance Philibert Emanuel du Bois.

In 1642 the price of its 4.75 ells of cloth was 11 (three times that of a foot colour) Its motto "Tutissimus" is old latin for :-more secure,well protected, and may have been the Traynes firelocks colour of which du Bois was also Captain.
The Trayne gives potential gun crew; instruction and training in all aspects of working on a cannon, as well as taking part in the gun-captaincy assessments and tests.
