Rudder (Period)

Rudder (Period)

A rudder is a broad, flat piece of wood, attached to the stern of a ship and used to steer it.  It’s a period charge, used as a badge by Willoughby, Lord Broke, c.1520 [HCE xxxiv].  The rudder has its hinge to dexter by default; it is usually, though not invariably, shown with its tiller.

Raymond Carder the Sea Rover bears as a badge:  On a rudder purpure, an equal-armed Celtic cross saltirewise Or.
