Can anyone point me to a contemporary image of a buckler hung at belt with sword (like Chaucer's yeoman)?

Here ya go: http://www.thehaca.com/essays/SwordandBucklerP2.htm

There are several illustrations with soldiers carrying their bucklers slung from the sword. You'll have to scroll down the page a bit to find most of the 14th and 15th century illustrations.

on that subject, your typical bucker is usually how big? about a foot in diameter at max?

how easy or hard is it to carry a buckler around with you like just walking around the camp, or carrying it with you on 'the march'

how burdensome is it?

Chaucer's yeoman carried on on pilgrimage through England, so not too burdensome.

Here you have a detail of a painting that illustrates one possible method.

ah thats good to hear, since the way i see it, if its nice and small and its carried like that so unobtrusively i feel like your never going to really be in a losing position to not carry it aside maybe from the dinner table even if your in full harness having it for when, you cant use your pollax, it seems logical to have that option of a buckler, no matter what.

Herbert: thanks for that image - that's one of the clearest we've seen yet!

Y'all might want to check out the Carrying Bucklers thread here too.
