[In the History of the Fund it is stated (after incorporation) that " The Prince of Wales immediately gave the Institution permission to bear his crest (sic) upon its arms, and expressed his high sense of the personal compliment paid him in requesting it," and it is further stated that in 1842 "the Queen was graciously pleased to grant to the Institution the privilege of bearing the imperial crown as an addition to its armorial bearings." There is no grant of arms on record.]
