Physical Description

From the base of the pauldron. It is gutter shaped, with a medial keel. The upper edge is straight, with cropped corners, the side edges angled forwards and the lower edge cut with three cusps, with a rivet hole for articulation in each. At either side is a rivet for a strap and buckle. At the front of the upper edge two rivet holes, at the centre another, and at the rear a slot, for articulation. All the edges are plain. Thus the lame was overlapped at the top, and overlapped at the bottom.

Stamped low at the front is the crow's foot mark assigned to Calatayud. Low at the rear is incised XII. Inside is painted M 549-1927.
