Noble Friends, Especially Fellow Archers,

On this date in 1346, a large French army was defeated by a smaller 
English force led by Edward III, King of England, at the Battle of Crécy 
during the Hundred Years' War. This battle was won largely by the 
careful positioning of the English army on a field of their choice, and 
by English archers using the yew longbow with devastating effect. Crécy 
established the tactical superiority (and fame) of longbow-heavy armies, 
though Edward had already tested his archers in two major battles 
against the Scots.

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Archer of Mallard Lodge
