Splints are the arm part of Almain Rivet, easily massed produced armour first introduced/imported by Henry VIII- ideal for Flodden etc but not much earlier.

Other examples-

Looks like a lot of em are from Leeds


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Top three are a set from Leeds Armouries, the last one is from Winchester and in a museum there.

Would a helmet like the one in your avatar go with that? Winchester is just up the road a bit form Angie's so an easy visit.

That style of burgonet is about 60 years too late. A simple skullcap, bellows-visor sallet or casquatel-style helmet'd be best.

No idea- it's been 15 years since I was in Winchester and didn't see much as was doing a show for Regia (when not humming New Vaudeville Band tunes ;) )

It is apparently in this one-

Armour circa 1513


Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

The Almain rivet in Winchester is in the Westgate Museum at the top end of the High Street, and just round the corner from the Winchester book shop. At least, it was last year. There's a pretty good collection of stuff for a small (and free) museum, including an estoc of which I have a repro, and the gibbet used to display the body of Jack the Painter.


...and further this Informant saith not.
