English term or phrase: pike man
I'm just trying to think even with a bit of mail here you might still be vulnerable here, but there's one other place, you know the famous Earl of Hereford test. Battleborough Bridge, he was walking over this bridge and there was this unsporting Pike man underneath and just at the right time the pike went woomf, like this and of course that's the one area you're, you're……. (laughing) actually unarmoured.
