Hauberk, or Hauberg: a name which appears to be given to the cuirass, from the German Hals==berg, i.e. a protection for the neck, but it has only been observed in one coat of arms.
The Habergeon is given in books as a diminutive of Hauberk, and is a short coat of mail without sleeves, but no example has been noticed is blazon. [The word, it may be added, is used in the Authorized Version, 2 Chron. xxvi. 14.]
Per pale azure and gules, a tilting-spear in pale proper surmounted by a hauberk[or coat of mail] or--AUBERT.
