Does anyone know what the livery for Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury(Kingmaker's father) used in the 1450-60s?

Many thanks

Colin

Red & Black, a griffin sejant (Standards & Livery Badges of the Wars of the Roses, Pat Mc Gill)

Red & Black, badges variously as follows (Heraldic Badges of England and Wales, Michael Powell Siddons, 2009 - Vol 2.1 - Ghost - I have Vol 2 of your Xmas present on Loan from the British Library, I couldn't afford the second mortgage necessary to buy it. )
- an eagle, colour not stated, Salisbury is referred to as the eagle in a political ballad of 1450.
- an eagle wings displayed, vert (green)
- a griffin sejant (sitting), or (gold)

A Gold eagle or Gold Griffin would follows heraldic rules (i.e an metal on a ticture,(colour)) better, though these were not invariably followed at this tine
