Arming Squire
The squire whose duties included accompanying his knight to war, caring for his gear, and helping him to put on his armour. Generally a five year apprenticeship from age 13 to 18. Sometimes the arming squires would accompany their knight as part of his lance , or household unit. These duties are distinguished from the squire of the table, whose duties were generally held to dressing the knight and serving at table, functions for younger squires and sometimes by pages . There is not always a clear distinction between the two. See also Chronique: The Journal of Chivalry #8 .
