This is just an idea thrown out to see your

these suits and see if they are still in good enough shape for

There are many more than two suits of armour in Rosslyn Chapel
where, it is said:
are twenty of Roslin's barons bold
Lie buried in that proud chapelle;
Each baron, for a sable shroud,
Sheathed in his iron panoply".
However, it is not our intention to disturb the glorious dead in order to
display their armour.
There are museums where such things can be seen without desecrating the
of our illustrious ancestors.
