Innes of Edingight Hatchment
We have here the Funeral Hatchment of Sir Malcolm Innes of Edingight, painted by Mark D. Dennis who has kindly given us his permission to publish the image here.

Additionally, Mark has provided his own explanatory caption which follows:

The arms of Sir Malcolm Innes, 16th of Edingight, are shown impaled with those of the Lord Lyon on the badge of a Knight of the Most Venerable Order of St John and encircled first by the circlet of a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order and then the golden Thistle Collar as King of Arms of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle. Behind the shield, the batons of a Lord Lyon are displayed in saltire and reversed. From the base and ascending along the dexter side are the badges of the positions he held as Lyon Clerk, Carrick Pursuivant, Marchmont Herald and, finally, Orkney Herald Extraordinary. Across the helmet of a knight with the palm crest of Innes rising from his chapeau as feudal Baron of Crommey is depicted his personal badge of a bullrush and crescent. The dexter supporter is that of the Office, and the sinister supporter is Sir Malcolm's (heraldic) greyhound. The hound partially obscures the arms of Joan, Lady Innes, of the Tweeddale Hays, who predeceased her husband. Only the sinister half of the hatchment is blackened as, of course, the Office endures.

The artwork is an interpretation by Mark D. Dennis.
