We eventually see Edmund in full armor as
he directs the gryphons, the archers, and the reserves in the great
battle. His garb is very similar to Peter's,
except for a few details.
The biggest differences are: Edmund's armor is much lighter
than Peter's. His helmet has no visor, and he wears smaller
pauldrons and no vambraces or gloves. Ed has an inverted V-hem
on the tabard - Peter's is pointed. Ed's belt is darker, too,
with buckles shaped like those of the centaur belts.

of gold rings around the edges, and his plates have a gold insert
The mail coat is laced up the front with leather lacings and falls
to mid-thigh. He also wears a hoodless coif and leggings of
mail. Plate armor consists of pauldrons at the shoulders of
three lames (the battle montage image incorrectly shows four;

The hem of Edmund's tabard is cut in a sloping, upside-down
V shape (at least in the front: we haven't seen the back) with
about 1 inch thick of gold velvet binding. The rampant golden
lion is satin-stitched on; see the outlined patterns provided

is similar to those of the centaurs: wood with a steel border
riveted to red and gold leather and a diamond-shaped boss in
the middle, carved with the lion's face. NarniaWebber Edmund

Edmund's sword is narrower and tapers more than Peter's. The
steel guard curves away from his hand toward the blade. The
grip is dark burgundy leather and the pommel is steel and fan-shaped.
