Sallet

The medieval sallet was the helmet of choice for 15th Century medieval soldiers, some had visors, some where worn with beavers which protected the neck and chin.



Worn by me in period of about 5 or 6 years when I was part of the Buckinhams Retinue a soldier in the Duke of Stafford's household.


 My sallet was not a good example but it served a purpose, you can find much better quality elsewhere. 

I should also note I no longer own this helmet it was sold on to another keen reinactor.
