    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.
     
  6. I didn't shoot a frenchman at Agincourt, but lots of my ancestors were there fighting for Henry V as archers !

    Put your Surname into this database and you may be lucky too...

    On who's side? :)
     
  9. Ours...despite the French surname...
     
  10. Looks like there were no Polacks at Agincourt
     
  11. 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... :)
     
  12. Enter surname Thomas. 8-O
