Quite often you see depictions of the helmet on the knight in Guy’s last post being pushed up and worn on top of the head, whilst on the march or doing something other than fighting.  Could this be what the pikemen in the painting are doing?

Interesting to see that the dart has feathers, although it is clearly more of a javelin than an “Eric Bristow” type of weapon.  Mind you, turn up to your local with three of those, and there’ll be trouble!
