If you were an English Man at Arms fighting in England during the Wars of the Roses, what would your primary armament be for dismounted combat?

Dagger. I would hide in the back and stab the guys on the ground.

Englishmen are used to being stabbed from behind while prone.

Yep, pollaxe.

Hand and a half (b***ard) sword

In that order.

If down on their lock then a bill, Halberd, voulge, glaive would suffice make up the back ranks.
