English Archer- In Pics

I've been putting together a medieval English archer kit which came to fruition with the purchase of a English longbow, a 14th century gambeson and, recently, some medieval style arrows. With the exception of era accurate trousers and footware the kit is complete and (somewhat) historically accurate using fully functional but modern replica items.

I would likr to add a bascinet or kettle style helmet along with some rudimentary plate armor, specifically for the lower legs as was often seen in medieval sources from the 14th and early 15th century. Isn't living history grand!
