Anyway we will be able to say the opposite, as it is not the same people, they are different and it had to be noticed visually that’s all, yes  historically I suspect that their were perceived differences …

The huscarls of england England would likely have kite shields in preference to round, especially if in the household of a Southern Earl. They may also wear a longer mail coat as the fashion was moving that way.

The “English” Huscarls would have ridden to battle whereas the invaders hadn’t necessarily stolen enough horses to all ride before Stamford Bridge, especially as they’d stayed close to rivers thus far.
