Noble Friends,

Today the BBC offers a brief story on whether Agincourt was actually a 
Welsh victory. It seems that many of of Henry V's archers were Welsh, 
and the modern Welsh are now laying claim to a share of the glory: 
http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-34618197 . Even Shakespeare was aware 
of this, and there is a moving scene after the battle where Henry 
embraces declares himself Welsh and embraces one of his Welsh archery 

In another interesting BBC piece, researchers think they might have 
found the wreck of one of Henry V's ships from the French campaign. The 
Holigost (Holy Ghost) is now thought to be in the mud of a river near 
Southampton: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0350jsw and 
http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34508070 . The first site contains a 
contemporary illustration of how the Holigost may have looked, while the 
second includes a modern artist's rendering.

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, That Crazy Scot
