I'm sorry to hear that. How many months along were you?

As an aside, 'Tropper' is spelled with 2 'p's and 1 'o'.
Only because he made a typo error when setting up his username :)

He is an ex-pony lover and wished to use the highest rank he reached as his username:)

Soz Trops, could't help it.

My ancestor was mobilised for Op Banner 1395-1397. Given that his CO was 2nd Baron of Masham, I'd guess that he was in the times' equivalent of the Yorkshire Volunteers.

I'd like to think that he shot his arrows in a high trajectory... :)

Right. Although we must bear in mind that spellings weren't standardised for much of Tropper's life, this has the Ring Of Truth to it and is now the Official Explanation of Tropper's Username.

Just goes to show that you lot are a bunch of commoners, there's only one with my surname :)
Conscientious objectors or just plain draft dodgers?

Got to be careful as I also only have one listed and that one not at Agincourt. Still, I suppose there had to be some left behind to keep the soldiers' wives lubricated. Wouldn't want the soldiers coming back from battle to find that the missus had dried up.
