The left arm defence is composed of a pauldron and vambrace permanently riveted together. The pauldron is composed of a main plate with four lames above and four below.

At front and rear of the main plate is a rosette of rivets. The vambrace comprises an upper cannon with a turner, joined by two articulating lames above and below a bracelet couter, and a lower cannon fastened by a sprung stud on the outside and hinged at the inside. The main edges have plain inward turns, these and the subsidiary edges bordered by single incised lines. The wing of the couter has a single medial line. The exterior is bright
