A sad tale, indeed, but very well told.
I can't remember if this is mentioned in the book, but in the film Aragorn is seen putting on Boromir's vambraces while watching the funeral boat drift away. Apparently, he removed them from Boromir's body as a memento of his friend's passing.
Vambraces are metal or boiled leather cylindrical plates used to protect the wrists and forearms. Gondorian and Ithilien rangers usually wore two-layer vambraces made of metal and leather.
Thank you, I'm pleased you liked this.
I think the vambraces were only in the film, but it made a very moving gesture.
