Guard Duty

This is probably as close as I’m ever going to get to seeing a real medieval soldier with a pole arm (unless time machines suddenly become a thing?)

Throughout history, and across the world (from the Far East, all the way through Europe) the pole arm was a popular and successful weapon.

This particular soldier was at a battle re-enactment several years ago. Thankfully no one was injured, the pole arms were kept at a safe distance.
