Hello,

For my first post in this forum, please find my picture gallery that I took last trip to Soleure Ancient Arms Museeum,

Well, as you can see most of the armour are most dated around the 16th and 17th century.

Wow Naully,

some of these pictures do look, as if an army of ghosts does haunt this arsenal... Very impressive. Never saw so much arms and armor in one place.

Thanks for showing!

Thomas

Edit: I checked the museum... It's the Altes Zeughaus in Solothurn/Swiss. You got me started to plan a trip to there!!!

Why do the Swiss love silly looking face guards?
