An arm(our) and a leg.

Thanks very much to Megan (and Mum) who sent this picture of Henry VIII’s armour on show in the Tower of London. This armour would have been worn when he fought on foot rather than on horseback. Analysing his suits of armour, the researchers discovered that by the final years of his life, the 6ft 1in Tudor boasted a whopping 52in waist. He really was King size!!
