Noble Friends,

On this day in 1346, Edward III of England won a decisive battle against 
a much larger French force at the Battle of Crecy. This battle was noted 
for the use of an archery-heavy army fighting on foot, rather than 
relying chiefly upon heavily armored knights on horseback:

proven these tactics against my fellow Scots, and the use of massive 
archery barrages were to be the key tactic of the English for the next 
200 or so years.

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, The Archer of Mallard Lodge
