Especially useful as I'm currently researching Bishop Henry Depenser 'the fighting bishop' of Norwich whose main claim to fame in these parts is his overthrow of t...

There are lots of 'trial by combat' shields in Talhoffer 1467 which resemble twin spiked pavises - used in conjunction with tourney-type clubs.

Hi BK Just a small correction of sorts... The Hopitallers wore black mantles with white cross from 1120 - probably a plain latin cross. You rightly state that they adopted a military surcoat in 1248 - probably becuse the monastic habit was too encumbersome to fight in. So easiest is a monastic habit...
