As some readers will know, the main French Agincourt (Azincourt) event took place in the summer. The coming Sunday, St Crispian’s Day, has been adopted by the French Gendarmerie because Gallois de Fougières died in 1415 and he is considered as the first gendarme killed in the face of an enemy.
Sunday will be celebrated by a keen group of living history recreators “La Mesnie 1415” (the 1415 Fellowship), among others, who will be on the battlefield giving it a medieval flavour. They have a great website – check out the photos, even if you don’t speak French. The main event details are here (in English).
