Monks Habit

Hi - I'm looking for someone who can supply a decent late C14th Monks habit - any suggestions out there ?

I've got my own habits which are pretty unusual and couldn't be shown to the MOPs :wink: :twisted: :twisted:

Helmets

Can anyone lay to rest some discussions about what an archer would have worn as a helmet from circa 1350 to 1415 ? Kettlehelms seem the favourite but were sallets much later than this, particularly the tailed ones ?

Anyone feel confident to answer with any certainty ?

Thanks in anticipation.

Re: long bows - evidence of drawing to mouth or ear?

I'm giving it a try ! Got a bit of elbow wobble going when I experimented befor emy last post - I'm happy drawing to the ear and agree entirely with what you say about accuracy - if you keep consistent with what you do then your aiming should remain the same, the draw should remain the same and then...

Re: long bows - evidence of drawing to mouth or ear?

I've just been trying pulling the draw-arm back until the elbow is in line and it does make things much more stable, but given your quote above what is the draw weight of your bow ? 33 inches is a hell of a long way back with a heavy bow !

Re: Wooden Drinking Vessels

Thanks all - I had heard about Beeswax being used as a liner - I'm not sure about drinking vessels being left untreated as the liquid must surely soak into the wood to a degree - I've got lots of plates and bowls that I just use and clean as required but there is no long term soaking involved. I'll ...
