Re: Hospitallier Soft Kit

Here is my finalized Hospitallier soft kit. Turned out pretty well, I think. I based all this on the very, very few paintings of them from 1200-1260 along with Brother Ranulf's help as mentioned before. The only thing that I think I would change but had no other options at the moment was to go with ...

Hospitallier Soft Kit

After some wonderful insight from Brother Ranulf, I put together a Hospitallier soft kit, minus the cloak. After taking his research coupled with mine, this is what I came up with for the early 1200's. I'm pleased with it. I still need type of rope belt to top it off. I'm slowly self teaching myself...

Beautiful work, Graham. That blue contrasting with the brass really adds to the piece.

New Woodworking Projects

Just finished up my most favorite trestle table I've made to date. It's based on a drawing from the Companie of St. George's magazine, the Dragon, issue 7, pg 9. I think it turned out rather well. Then I finished a Canfield type chest (along with paper mache cat :wink: ) for my Black Prince harness....

New Kits

I have so very few medieval brethren in my area that I need to have my 10 year old daughter take pics of me in my new nobleman's kit, around 1360, and my Poitiers archer kit. I'm pretty proud of it all. The nobleman has been in the works for a few years and has turned out nicely.

Any Fact in This 'Story'?

I heard a quick blurb from a friend of mine that he had read somewhere, but can't remember where, that some nobleman hit Edward, the Black Prince, with a tennis ball and so thoroughly upset the prince that he had some of the man's lands taken away. Upon asking another friend he proposed these storie...

Zauberdachs, Thanks for the input. I'm not questioning your knowledge, I just want to educate myself, so thus this question.

Thanks for the input, folks. Greatly appreciated. It's nice getting input from 'local' folks. The forum that I got this subject from tends to have many opinionated 'experts' who are very stubborn and narrow-minded.

Edward III's Sword

There's been a debate over here across the pond on a forum about Edward III 6'8 sword in the St. George Chapel in Windsor. The main debate was: would a 6'8 long sword be ceremonial or actually used in action as a weapon? Granted, the landsknechts used the longer style swords 200 years later, but kee...

Arming a Knight. IN COLOR!!

My 9 year old daughter and I did a montage of how to arm a knight pics. She dressed me and took the pics. You may notice that the placard and breastplate don't fit quite right on my left hand side. That's because that damn strap is too short and my daughter couldn't get it fastened. (It may also be ...

Re: The Incident at the Rose and Crown

You should have added some more pics, that better suited the title, such as all of you fellows, in full gear in the pub, all looking mortified at a spilled pint on the floor. That really would have been an Incident at the Rose and Crown.

Yes, I am aware that the padding that I used for my maille standard is not period, but, man, is it comfortable. So my question is, what can I do to make it look more 'authentic'?

If I'm portraying a household archer of, let's say, Edward IV, where would I wear his livery badge? On my doublet? Acorn hat? Foraging (pilgrims) bag? Arrow bag? Bow bag? Where if at all? Would my wearing this livery badge be frowned upon if I were to hook up with a group some weekend that only port...

Authenticating Kit

Underneath the aventail of a houndskull bascinet, is it normal to wear some type of padded item? Is it sewn to the aventail, or is it an extension of the padded coif? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I've posted this on another forum in the US a few months ago, but now that I've found a living history site, I want to see the opinion here. What was the effect of a cavalry charge in the 'days of glory' of the mounted knight. Edward the III changed tactics and unmounted his men, but was the cavalry...

Quite some years ago A & E put out a video entitled "Knights and Armor". At the end of the video, when the credits start to roll, a song by a lute begins. I am interested in learning the name of this song and where I can get it. All the credits stated were music by Kithara and Christopher Wilson...
