    Notes It was originally thought that father and son's ganseys were identical but close examination shows a small variation. The columns of motifs are slightly differently offset, with Jack's chevron being evenly spaced between the points of the meshes while Jacob's has one set of chevrons only slightly above the point of the meshes and the other slightly above half way between the meshes..
