Re: A Gallery of Helmet Adornments and Crests

I see from your previous posts that you have refined your crest somewhat Errent Knight. I think this is somewhat better, as it is placed on top of the helm rather than out of the sides.

You would certainly be hard to miss on entering the lists. Very good.

Re: A Gallery of Helmet Adornments and Crests

Two superb images, Errent Knight, which are greatly enhanced by the colouring. This is a splendid source of reference for the armour of the time.

I am impressed by the size of your horns, by the way: good for the lists but perhaps not the tourney? But then it is all about show, is it not?

Heraldry in the modern world

It is interesting to note that crests are still extant in the modern world as part of the full "achievement" of armigers (those who hold registered arms).The Victorians were extremely keen on all things Gothic and revived the fascination with heraldry, but two world wars rather put this on...

Mr Muller has done a superb job for you, Ben. Bravo to him!

It will be interesting to see you in your complete ensemble when all is finished. Please post some photographs then.

Re: A Gallery of Helmet Adornments and Crests

Yes, Latheaxe, indeed it is yours...and a fine effort it is, too. The only problem with buying second hand is that it requires creating comparable arms and shield and so on to go with the original. Hence, it is entirely possible that you might meet yourself on the battlefield sometime! Actually, I h...

Re: A Gallery of Helmet Adornments and Crests

My crest is actually made of plastic...but don't tell anyone!

I think the norm for crests might well have been leather over a wire frame (cuir bouille): strong enough, but light also. Any other suggestions?

Olivier's Henry V

A few days ago, Kenneth Branagh's version of Henry V was aired on TV. Whilst accepting that he and his ilk always feel the need for a different interpretation of a classic Shakespeare piece, I was left heartily disappointed by the usual dumbing down for the modern audience. For instance, one is amaz...

Re: A Gallery of Helmet Adornments and Crests

Looking at the original posting, I can see why you were confused, Sir George, as I did juxtapose the two ideas. I was wondering about the ostrich feather as crest because it is widely used nowadays by re-enactors at places such as Tewkesbury, and with reference to your research and that of Craig1459...

Re: A Gallery of Helmet Adornments and Crests

Hello, Sir George I am somewhat confused, as the picture to which I think you are referring is indeed peacock feathers as stated on the picture itself, and to which I made reference myself. Nevertheless, I agree with you as to the date of appearance for ostrich feathers and would guess that the firs...
