The Black Princes Longbowmen

These longbowmen belong to the Black Princes retinue and are wearing his retinue colors of green and white.These deadly archers proved to be the bane of the French at both Crecy and Poitier's.If these men were ever captured by the French,then they could expect little mercy and if they were not killed out of hand then often they would cut off their draw cord pull fingers.The result was that English longbowmen would show their two fingers before battle to taunt the French by showing they still had theirs and intended to put them to good use.As you can see,my center archer is doing just that!(LoL)
