Plumed Auxiliaries
Non-contact participants (including banner-bearers) were removed from Society rules in August 2006. Lochac requested an exemption to maintain the use of non-contact participants on the field - so now our banner bearers and non-contact archers wear plumes.
Plumed auxiliaries are called auxiliaries to get around the age restrictions on combatants being at least 16 years old for armoured combat.
Pole weapons must not be used as banner poles as plumed auxiliaries may not carry any weapon, and we don't want 14-year-olds hit because someone thought they were carrying a weapon and didn't check for a plume.
