Andrew Balmforth and Copper Take Time Out

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.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
