Poster News Item
Jack M.

In response to the suggestion that Arwen is pictured on the poster:

1. In medieval times, it was common for soldiers to wear round shields on their upper arms when not in battle.

2. It was also common for them to wear long cloaks.

3. Because of the long cloak, you would not be able to see a sheathed sword hanging from a belt.

Conclusion: It's not Arwen.
