Merry Agincourt Day .. October 25th

All you fans of the Archers, 25/10/1415 is the day for you

Barnier claims that the 'British' voted for Brexit out of nostalgia for our glorious past. Well here's a good example of REAL nostalgia when the French, as usual, took a hell of a beating ((:>)

  • The French obviously didn't take on board the lessons from the Battle of Crecy. They carried on underestimating us right up until Waterloo!

    I know we're not meant to mention it but our French overloads lost the war to their French overloads so all this talk of The "French, as usual, took a hell of a beating ((:>)" is laughable and not historically accurate.

    Except, as I said, the French won the 100 years war.

    And Waterloo as some Duke once said was "Damn close run thing".

    your po-faced comment is most unwelcome in this context .. read the post title .. Agincourt, NOT the 100 Years War .. and of course later we had to bale out our French 'allies' in two 'world wars' and now we find the French willingly subservient to the Germans in the European Union, a k a the German Empire

    So much wrong and so much laughable about that statement but the cheap insult to the French army of WW1, nearly 100 years on from their victory, alongside the British, Americans, Canadians, ANZACs, Indians and others of course, when they provided the bulk of the troops on the Western front for four years is staggering even for you, Dracula.

    Look, Moosh, I've been to Waterloo and I bet you haven't..... Oh, yeah I went with you : - )

    Prime Minister is good but not quite Emperor.

    Just as well we had the Prussians on our side at Waterloo really. Funny how facts like that haven't reached the north.

  • Brobribb is getting over excited, he'll be out for blood soon .. I'll just stick to Agincourt before we get the entire history of English/French conflict from Hastings (all right, won by Vikings living in France) to Brexit

    Already in pain from the splitting of my sides laughing at your posts : - )

    That was a mere naval skirmish
    Agincourt highlighted the might of the world's greatest army.

    Step One: Get someone else to create a Revolution
    Step Two: Murder the Royal Family
    Step Three: When that other someone fucks up and gets killed, quietly come onto the scene as saviour
