his is the classic form of helmet most often associated with the image of a knight. During Henry the VIII's wars in France (1522-1523), this form of helmet would have been in use on both sides. The term Close Helm refers to the fact that this type locks firmly
around the head for complete protection, with a very narrow field of
vision to expose the eyes as little as possible. The visor is pierced
with key-holes on both sides for good air flow during combat. The lower
bevor section is split into two overlapping pieces that are hinged at
the sides and hook together at the chin while the visor locks down
firmly over it. Feather Plume
