    Reminds me a a guy here who bought some 'body armour' on Ebay and decided to test it. Good thought, maybe against sand. However he got a friend to shoot him wearing it and sure enough, he was killed. The shooter was charged, being as he had a choice and could have refused.

    I cannot remember which one it was, either Pope or Young who visited a British museum and was shown the armor of the times. A discussion followed on whether the armor would stop an arrow from an English Longbow. The curator was so sure he said he would wear it for a test. It was one of the two who made English Longbows out of yew and while theirs were 80 pound draws were not particularly heavy for that type of bow. Instead of wearing the armor the shooter insisted they try it filled with a material first. The arrow punched through the armor, went through the filler and stopped at the back. They claimed the curator that offered to wear it was a little white faced. Armor would not stop much but was good at deflection but ;not at straight on hits. Both Pope and Young, who our archery record association is named after, preferred the long bow.

    Never knew that story, good one thanks. I had a long bow in my teens. Archery was, is, a popular hobby here. You may know in days of old archery practice every Sunday was actually the law in England. No choice. It was to make sure when called upon to fight, the country had a good supply of competent archers.

    As an archer, it may interest you to know the bones of the archers recovered from the Mary Rose ship had much greater bone growth on the shoulders, due to pulling the great weights of the powerful bows over long periods. I went once to the museum and saw the ship and much of the recovered items. The recovered bows, 137 apparently, were about 6'6" long and had a draw weight over 100 lbs.

    Don't remember the which King made that requirement, but it was aimed at maintaining a militia if you will of archers. Paid off in Agincourt as the outnumbered British troops shot the heck out of the French. I think I read somewhere that a captured English archer would have one of his fingers removed on his drawing hand before release to guarantee that he would not draw a bow again. They had to shoot at 180 paces in practice at a post. Started a specific competition where the bullseye was drawn around the post on the ground and the best scores were those arrows closest to the post.

    Ben Franklin mentioned that longbows would be more effective than the muskets used in the American revolution. Greater rate of fire and possibly more accurate. Problem was that of the need for greater training. Both Pontiac and Tecumseh wanted the tribes to return to the old ways as by their time many Natives did not use bows but converted to the trade muskets. They were dependent on European trade for muckets but not for bows. Some preferred bows for buffalo running on horseback.
