    Just realized upon my re-reading of TTT that among the items that Legolas, Aragorn and Gimli put in the boat with Boromis was his helm.

    I find that sort of wierd as it had not been mentioned at all up until this point.

    So...did Aragorn ALSO have a helm on the journey?

    Probley not. Aragorn was a ranger, compared to Boromir, who was apart of the Gondorian Army.

    I looked it up just now, and Glorfindel is right:

    "They combed his long dark hair and arrayed it upon his shoulders. The golden belt of Lórien gleamed about his waist. His helm they set beside him, and across his lap they laid the cloven horn and the hilts and shards of his sword; beneath his feet they put the swords of his enemies."

    I also find it a remarkable thing. I never imagined Boromir with a helm during the quest.

    lol! Although it does make sense that Boromir had a helm....he was one of the leaders of the Gondorian army, and who in their right mind WOULDN'T wear a helm with so many dangers about - although he didn't know of the quest when he set out for Rinvendell, there would have been many dangers on the Road from Gondor to Rivendell... if he took his sword, why not his helm? It would only make sense...

    I never really thought of Boromir with a helm either. I don't guess he had to be wearing it 24/7 though. With the way that he entered his final battle, he might not have been wearing it when he died.
