I am currently in London and getting a good education in arms and armouries on a tour organized by tour leader Caroline Stanley. Today our small group our small group went to the Wallace Collection and had an introduction to the arms collection there by Keith Dowan who is the Assistant Curator of the Royal Armouries. I have to apologize but since this tour is jam packed and has us tooting around both daytime and evening I cannot give you a proper post at the moment. But here are some photos ….
In a day or two when I have some more time I will fill you in on that fascinating information about the arms and armour shown in these photos. Now I’ve got to run as we are having diner at the Armourers and Brasiers’ Company in the City of London.
The Wallace Collection is in Hertford House, Manchester Square, London W1U 3BN
