Sir Fredrich Karl Kyburg of Trimaris lost at Gulf War XIII
Stainless bascinet with an over the shoulder riveted mail aventail
Pair of stainless and leather arms
Aluminum left demi-gauntlet back of hand only
Sword with basket hilt.
1. The major features are described below.
The bar grill is a separate piece mounted with nuts and bolts. As far as I
know no other helmet has this arrangement.
Aventail is mounted to helmet even with the top of the bar grill by leather,
pins and wire. Most I have seen are mounted at the bottom of the helmet.
Aventail is mounted to the bottom of the bar grill by leather and rawhide
Padding is a red sparring head gear with duct tape on the edges to hide the
color when worn.
Chin strap is a black string which ties under the aventail in back.
2. The attached file is the best photograph of the arms I could get my hands
Stainless elbow cop with lames
Leather is covered with 3/4 inch wide stainless strips riveted every inch
Strips are spaced 3/4 inch apart
Rivets are spaced every inch in between the stainless strips.
Straps are not attached to arms but are fed through slots. I believe this is
a unique arrangement.
3. Aluminum left demi-gauntlet. No unique features.
4. Sword with basket hilt. No unique features.
They have never been out on their own and will need your help finding their
