Noble Friends,

Today the BBC has a brief story about the rediscovery of still photos 
from the 1944 Olivier version of Henry V: 
http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-south-east-wales-32751979 . Sadly, the 
article only reproduces three of the photos. Two are views of the 
archers, showing what appear to be excellent period costumes. Curiously, 
most of the archers have their archers on the right side of their bows 
(Mongolian style), though they are otherwise shooting right-handed. 
Hmmm. After seeing the videos of that Dutch speed shooter, I tried this 
on my basement range and put both arrows into the wall. Enough of that 

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, The Archer of Mallard Lodge
