English term or phrase: second only to the sea
to be used on a naval shield
Paul Johnston
Latin translation:secundum solum inter id mareque
Explanation:
Dear Paul,

here's how I would put it in Latin.

Secundum solum: only second
inter: if we compare (among, between)
id: it
mareque: and the sea.

Hope it helps! Latin has not exactly the same constructions as English.
