Armor - Armor - Designing armor for American soldiers. In the Armorer's Workshop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y. under the direction of Major Bashford Dean, Ordance Dept., U.S.A. and curator of armor at the Museum, where armor for the American soldiers fighting in France is being designed. The suits of armor used in medieval times which many collectors have brought to the museum were carefully inspected and the good points brought to bear in fashioning this modern armor. The actual labor is being performed by Assistant Curator of Armor at the Museum, Daniel Facheaux and his assistant Sergt. Jacques Bartel, of the Ordnance Dept. American soldiers wearing this armor have gone into actual battle to test the effectiveness of the covering, and upon the result of the experiments depends whether the soldiers are to wear armor. Old helmets on exhibition in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, N.Y. These helmets are of Italian origin dating back to the 15th century. They are technically known as Saladebarbute, and are all of Milanese workmanship. The helmet on the extreme left is of classic design, and follows the fashion set by the ancient Greeks. These helmets are being studied by military experts so that the good points will not be lost in designing modern armor
