Intersting bit I picked up from what Dathi posted in the 17th century bit

a 1510 "burgonet"

Although I think this is more fitting

This particular example was used largely by the Scots, whose enemies used the term "Steel Bonnet" when referring to the highland raiders.

From what I have found so far. The early helmets did not have the cheek pieces with cut outs that go under the brim. The exposed hinges may be right and the shape of the crown is OK but too deep.
Highlanders raiders with these :o :wtf: . You know people only post that sort of thing to get a reaction from us.

Or septics marketing to other septics.

I even had a well read Californian once ask if reivers wore trews or kilts - honest to God I did..!

But then again, when I worked in Texas I was asked what language we spoke in England. :swear: that said I did put in a good smattering of Doric to confuse them while I was over there.

Hi there

A little late to the game with this reply, just spotted the thread.

I have some limited experience in making helms, below is one under construction, a 15th century fluted kettle helm. Tod, I have PM'd you with some more details.

All the best

Flodden Display (Etal Castle) - This dates back to the late 80's & early 90's and the armour was relatively early Richard Dunk, so a bit dated and not up to the standards of reproduction we see today. He used to be in the original Staffords and Bills & Bows. Not sure of his sources but most of the illustrations in his early catalogue came from European armour (Claude Blair ? )

From what I was told there is no plan to update it, some of the stuff there is pretty poor, other bits are OK but it could be a lot better.
