Footstone Detail - WWII Royal Canadian Navy Crest

Granbury, Texas, U. S. A.

Having decided that I wanted to place a footstone on my father's grave to recognize his military service I emailed the Canadian government for details of the footstone design. They sent them to me quickly; however, I was informed that I would have to obtain permission to use the military crest as it was copyrighted. Again, I contacted the appropriate office. They sent me the forms which I promptly filled out and sent in. As time went on I realized that I was not going to get timely permission to use the crest. I used it anyway - good thing as I still have not received permission for a one-time use of the crest...still no permission as of June 4, 2013!

I had the monument company obtain the stone from the same quarry in Quebec, Canada, that the Canadian government uses for its military markers.
