Vive gladio peri gladio - Live by the sword die by the sword.

The word chainmail is of relatively recent coinage, having been in use only since the 18th century; prior to this it was referred to simply as mail. The word itself refers to the armour material, not the garment made from it. A shirt made from mail is a hauberk if knee-length, haubergeon if mid-thigh length, and byrnie if waist-length. Mail leggings are called chausses, mail hoods coif and mail mittens mitons. A mail collar hanging from a helmet is camail or aventail.

Mail was a highly successful type of armor and was used by nearly every metalworking culture in North Africa, Europe, and Asia. Its use spans from around 300 B.C. to the dawn of the 20th century and beyond, a period of over 2500 years. Today it remains in limited use in stab vests and a number of other applications.

Thanks as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome

Great close-up, Sarah, lovely detail. You can buy these chain mail 'shirts' at the Royal Armouries in Leeds - if you've about £80 to spare!

Virtually non existent I believe. Any young swordsman who held his weapon left handed upon commencing his training would have been chastised and made to hold it with his right. !!
