This picture shows Andrew Balmforth and Copper after their victory in the joust at the Royal Armouries Museum at Leeds in Yorkshire.
Andrew is wearing a made to measure suit of armour, it weighs around 5 1/2 stone taking about one year to make. Also Andrew wears underneath the armour an inch thick padded outfit for added protection and comfort.
Andrew has worked as an interpreter here at the Royal Armouries Museum for 10 years, his job, I think is to bring history to life for the museum visitors. I watched him chatting to some small children after the jousting and they really loved to talk to a real knight about his armour, sword and horse.
All this is true but I have not seen them since I had a Stroke in 2013, 5 months spent in hospital. I lost … job, flat, not mention my car… now at last I look much better…. I wish Andrew and Copper a wonderful time.
