Please note that unfortunately there are three different versions of the arms, and the description within source doesn't match the image there.
Both other versions display the canons bendy and sinister bendy, both display an additional rice ear Or fruited Argent, and a wheat ear Or. The background of one version is black, of the other version green. Look here! (additional wreaths and canons bendy)
