Another one for you, Dafydd.

One of my favorite stories for a number of reasons.

"The battle of Agincourt in 1415 was immortalised in Shakespeare's Henry V as a miraculous underdog English victory over the French.
So why is France investing millions of euros to upgrade the museum near the battlefield in the village of Azincourt in northern France?"

Interesting to read about the differing attitudes of today's people.
Nothing about the yew longbows that made up for the odds.

Shakespeare's 'stage Welshman', "Fluellyn", was part of it.

Thanks for the link.

The article did mention that many soldiers can be named today because so many were mercenaries with pay records.

A lot of those archers...

were from an area known as Llantrisant, about 31 miles from me.

Wow. The English are serious about their yews.

I'll have to spend some time with that.
Good one about the devil.
