Re: New Topic Crest

Mike McLaren's  "The Book of Crests" shows that Clans Cockburn and
Lyle also feature the cock on their crest badges.   According to
McLaren, the cock device is a symbol of courage and perseverance and
thus is a badge of a hero.

Where did the cock come from on the Sinclair Crest? When was it first
adopted? Why is it symbolic?
