I am currently taking an online course with a group called Future Learn 
about the battle of Agincourt.  It's great and I highly recommend it.  Only 
one week in, it's not too late to get in on it.  Taught from the University 
of South Hampton by a noted professor of medieval studies, ir;s chock full 
of info on medieval warfare.  In Service,  Averey Cockes

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
