DRESSED to kill from head to toe, these men look like they are not to be messed with.

But there was nothing to fear, as these two fighters are members of the Fareham-based Deeds of Arms group.

The historical players specialise in the gladiatorial combat of the second century, stage combat and the fait d’armes of the 1360s.

They were taking part in demonstrations outside Gosport Discovery Centre.

The pair were involved in mock fights and were giving medieval martial arts and combat displays.

People crowded round to watch the free demonstration.

They also had a host of pieces of historical equipment and weapons which people could look at in the Gosport Gallery afterwards.
