Graham Turner took part in his first joust in 2004, and since
then he has jousted all over the country - and abroad in Holland
and Ireland. The highlight of the 2007 season for him was to joust
as the Duke of Clarence at the Tower of London, and the photos
below show him revelling in every moment of this amazing experience.
"To be able to joust at such a historic and evocative site was
incredible, and the jousting was of the highest quality, with
the biggest impacts I have ever experienced - fantastic!"
In one pass Graham's targe (shield) had a hole punched right
through it, leaving a large dent in the armour beneath. "I was
relieved to still be on my horse after that one, but knew something
wasn't right when I breathed - the armour was pressing on my chest
where it had been stoved in".
