A feature of note was the loss of the camail throat-guard and the introduction of a light sheet-metal gorget.
Like his brother-in-arms, at Puig, he wears the camail and hauberk.
In the preceding chapter we noticed the method of attaching the camail to the bascinet.
A high collar of steel was next added as a substitute for the camail.
Knights gave up the use of the camail and jupon, and were 117clothed in complete armour.
In these brasses we find that the camail has become the Standard of Mail, or collarette, worn under the gorget of plate.
The jupon was a garment which covered the body from the camail to just above the knees.
The Bassinet with camail attached is not a characteristic of this century, though isolated examples may perhaps be found.
In the first a plate shaped somewhat to the nose was attached to the part of the camail which covered the mouth.
The knight is clad in armour, viz., a spherical bascinet, with a camail of chain-mail.
