Captain the Hon. Malik Umar Hayat Khan, 18th King George's Own Lancers, as Assistant Delhi Herald, 1911.

Delhi Herald of Arms Extraordinary was a British officer of arms whose office was created in 1911 for the Delhi Durbar. Though an officer of the crown, Delhi Herald Extraordinary was not a member of the corporation of the College of Arms in London and his duties were more ceremonial than heraldic.[1]

By the time the office was created in 1911, Brigadier-General William Peyton was appointed Delhi Herald of Arms Extraordinary,[2] while Captain the Hon. Malik Umar Hayat Khan was made Assistant Herald.[3][4] Later heraldic officers with reference to India were not appointed.
