Picture of knights in armour at Royal Armouries museum Leeds.
This photo was the last of the days interpretations and the last for the interpretation department at the Royal Armouries Museum Leeds, so the was a good crowd watching.
This photo shows Andy Deane and Andrew Balmforth (back to camera) giving a demonstration of 15th century pollaxe combat wearing late medieval foot combat armour. Anyone who thinks a knight was fairly safe in a suit of armour should hold a pollaxe and imagine what this heavy duty “tin opener” would do to the person at the business end!

I thought it only right that both Andy and Andrew should be pictured on this their last battle.
This short series of picture of the interpreters of the Royal Armouries museum here in Leeds will finish with the final picture tomorrow.
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 hope Andy Deane and Andrew Balmforth have a wonderful time.
