2007 deletion[edit]

The Phil Barker page was proposed for deletion 2 years ago - the result delete. After two years it is reasonable to revisit the issue but I suggest the creator of this page check out the procedure for changing a decision like this. Anyone who knows anything about wargaming will agree that Phil Barker is notable and his influence for good or ill ~on wargaming has been huge. None the less, it is the wider wiki community that has to be convinced.Dejvid (talk) 12:20, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for that Dejvid - I wasn't aware of this as it wasn't flagged when I did my check on writing an article. The deletion record seems to have been a very limited discussion about it being a stub without any external refs. Someone even suggests rewriting it to a better standard, which I hope I have. I'm pretty new to this so thanks again for your constructive guidance Monstrelet (talk) 12:51, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

See the comments on Talk:Phil Barker by Elen of the Roads . I'm no expert on this but to be for warned is to be for armed.Dejvid (talk) 13:31, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Greetings[edit]

Hello there.I noticed you had reverted my edit.I have a ref which supports what happend in the battle.When Edwards Knight were engadged the scottish pikemen the English combined attack with archers failed and were pushed to the right flank.Robert the Bruce then engadged his light cavalry to chase down the archers since the archers wernt able to fully mobilise.

I think this main engagement with the English archers must be mentioned.So what do you think???Goodbye.


Thanks youre a great help.Also I added the fact that the scots used yew stave longbows but gave a further explanation they had largely inferior archers and skills.I got it from that book I mentioned to you.Goodbye and thanks again.--HENRY V OF ENGLAND (talk) 09:35, 2 August 2009 (UTC)


Hello again.Page 63 in this book called Bannockburn 1314 Robert the Bruce victory suggests that there was only 500 scottish archers present in the battle.Should I add it?Thanks Again.--HENRY V OF ENGLAND (talk) 09:47, 2 August 2009 (UTC)


Sorry I missinterpeted I meant the accounts itself.Yes,the English archers were pushed in front of the lines and a shoot-out began between both the English and Scottish Archers.Few kills were excanged at first but then the King of England's archers put them to flight.The scottish archers engadged the infantry with battle axes towards the end and this caused pressure on the English ranks.The English accidentily mistaken camp followers as soldiors when they emerged from the forrosts and so they withdrew out of exhaustion.The have always been potrayed by evidence concerning the battle as having very few archers and little cavalry.


Hello again.I will definitely agree on you that the numbers differ very hugely from source to source.I also anknowledge the fact that Robert the Bruce learned from Falkirk 1298 by employing his own Longbowmen.I think though it would rather be convincing that he could have only fielded a small number of medicore archers.In a rational sence it takes in least a decade to gain proficiency with the bow and such archery was immensely disregarded in most of scotland (and only emerging in England for that matter).Archery wasnt anknowledged in scotland until the reign of James I in 1424 when he declared Archery Law.I wouldnt have expected Bruce to have fielded an immense group of archers.I am not even sure if any scottish chronicler has ever even commented regarding the battle any strong scottish archery playing a role at all and surely no source present credits a potential group of archers pressent on there side.When the Welsh archers were driven by the Men at arms the tide of the battle changed.Barbour whom was pressent at the battle wrote "So fast that if there shooting had presisted it would have gone hard for the scots".Bruce knew better then the English by having those cavalry pressent.Goodbye and have a nice-day.--HENRY V OF ENGLAND (talk) 10:26, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

--HENRY V OF ENGLAND (talk) 15:58, 2 August 2009 (UTC)


Hello Monstrrelet.I'm asking if Neil Amstrongs book on Bannackburn is reliable.He says near the first few pages there was about 1500 scottish archers but then he later says in page 63 that there in least 500 scottish archers strong in least that day where was the other 1000 at that time.Thanks--HENRY V OF ENGLAND (talk) 16:37, 8 August 2009 (UTC)


This is my copy from the Bannockburn talkpage.


Greetins to you both.Page 63 in this book called Bannockburn 1314 Robert the Bruce victory suggests that there was only 500 scottish archers present in the main battle but as Monstrelet said Neil Amstrong sugests a total of 1500 archers.The question itself if it is indeed 1500 archers where did the other 1000 archers dissapear from the scence?Scottish Archers carried battle axes and disdained missile and often liked to engadge in a close melee,as said by this book http://books.google.ie/books?id=RHQHAQAAIAAJ&q=Scottish+archers&dq=Scottish+archers.Also the book also states on page 31 that before King Roberts reign scotland had been hugely deficient of archers.There is evidence that Robert I changed the feudal obligation of knight service to archer service.A Knights fee was to supply 10 archers.However a bow(short) is clearly different from a longbow.Most of The archers of scotand were recruited from the Borders and low-lands since they were the most anlicised in manner.I wouldnt expect the scots have such a high amount of archers if there amount of cavalry was pretty little anyway.If they used the longbow it takes in least 10-15 years of practice to gain profficiency and also there skill is completely medicore.This all implyes to those archers because they engaded the English archers on the second day at dawn and were quickly put to flight by the English ones.1500 scottish archers is too high and anyway Amstrong even admits that there is no evidence of the proportion that was meant for the scots concerning pikemen and archers.A scottish ordinniane and parliamiant was held in scone 1318 near Perth adressing many angles of importance but an intresting one is that when it specificly aimed at those second category of men worth goods to a value of a cow were expected to equip themeselves with either a spear or a bow.The first(spear) was the most favored of that category.Scottish pikemen have been trained by Robert the Bruce to engadge in the move(litterely push them of the battlefield) to makethemselves harder targets for English archers.There is no evidence of trained scottish archers at the time of Bruce.Those very few good archers came from ettirick forest on the Borders as at Falkirk 1298.Unfortunatly I would have to disagree with Monstrelet on the argument that the scots had a wide range of archers since there is no evidence for this as far as I have read.Archery Law as I previously stated wasnt introduced until by King James in 1424 when he returned from English captivity.http://books.google.ie/books?id=x1QCAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA18&dq=The+scottish+archers+had+weak+skill#v=onepage&q=&f=false . This here states that English skill with the bow is indisputibly better then that of any scotsmen frenchmen ect.Archery Law was established twice in scotland both were a failuire.The French Francs-Archers formed by Charles VII in 1448 later turned out to be weak archers whom had no intrest in defending France or in archery and were no more a ruthless band of thugs so were quickly disbanded in 1435.Golf and football is propably a main reason for scottish indescisiveness with the bow in archery.Read this book Otterburn 1388.http://books.google.ie/books?id=5wEZgyYnoikC&pg=PA24&dq=Scottish+Archery+in+medievial+times&lr=&as_brr=3#v=onepage&q=&f=false .It says that the scottish archers were drawn from the borders and low-lands but they did not match the English archers in number or in there tactical skil.Scottish corps of archers continued to be a minority in the scottish army.1500 Archers is way to high.http://books.google.ie/books?id=KCl1l35K-IcC&pg=PA39&dq=Scottish+Archery+in+medieval+times&lr=&as_brr=3#v=onepage&q=&f=false .Also Robert the Bruce only stayed because of bad morale in the English camp.Scottish archers were only considerd a minority to Robert I not an accomplishement of victory.Bruce thought of having a sizeable amount of Longbowmen would counter the English ones but he could have never have recruited a huge nuber of them.The scottish archers were a small amount at Bannockburn and Falkirk.Goodbye and hope to see you again.--HENRY V OF ENGLAND (talk) 19:44, 8 August 2009 (UTC)


Hello Monstrelet thanks for your reply about scottish archery on the Bannockburn talkpage.I would like to explain a few points to you about the difference between the short bow,crossbow and longbow in government records at the time of Edward II.I found a book about the battle of Falkirk(1298) regarding archers.The same as usual n quote that they had hugely deficient archers and that archery was not a strong tradition in scotland.http://books.google.com/books?id=ykx5PcLxu-0C&pg=PA28&dq=Ettrick+Bow+and+lonbow&as_brr=3#v=onepage&q=&f=false .Of course they had a tradition (as does other countries) but as said in the book far from strong.Certainly the scots fought as mercenairies but they wernt allways archers or in fact had to be.Scottish mercenaries were employed by the french but in large amounts over-time.At the battle of Verniuil(1424),the English were commanded by the regent of France John the Duke of Bedford against the french led by the constable of France.The English archers were thought to have engadged the scottish archers but the scots were also put to flght.The last of Charles VII scottish allies were destroyed in this battle and the very last few fought at Heerings(1429) not as archers but as axemen.They also lost that battle.You might have heard of Edward III Yeamon of the Gaurd which was a 120 archer gaurd for the soveriegn.The French copied this idea and formed the scots gaurd(genndairimie das esscois) in 1418 by John Stewart but rarely fought in open-pitched battle with the exception if the French king as at battle in person like at the battle of Patay during the Italian Years War.Unfortunatly,the name Scots Gaurd became moot over time since Frenchmen started to fill up those ranks.Francs archers formed in 1448 were supposed to exercise the principle of archery at the church parishes.However the principle wasn't at all effective and was never even put to practice.When they went to church at sunday there are accounts of francs-archers plundering and looting goods.Charles de Bold convinced Louis XI after Guingaite (1479) when the french archers were exposed badly that they were not the best solution and started employing swisss pikemen.francs-archers had no exprerince or trainaing at all and during the italian years war they were nothing more then plunderers.They were also exposed really badly at Ravenna 1512 when the Gascon Archers ran off the battlefield.francs archers were said to only kill chickens not soldiors.The french drill with the use of the bow was not proficcient.http://books.google.com/books?id=hdh4Elj-3WEC&pg=PA513&dq=francs+archers+were+bad#v=onepage&q=&f=false .Louis XI even if he did not formally disband them let them freeley deterioate.http://books.google.com/books?id=xj8FAAAAIAAJ&q=francs+archers+were+bad&dq=francs+archers+were+bad&lr=

.http://books.google.com/books?id=OJQ9AAAAIAAJ&pg=PA120&dq=francs+archers+were+bad&lr=#v=onepage&q=&f=false .http://books.google.com/books?id=6PyBAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA208&dq=francs+archers+were+bad&lr=#v=onepage&q=&f=false .Back to archery in general,the difference between short-bows and longbows are given in this government record.The most prominint was the longbow with an average length of two ells(2.3m),a thickness of 4 thumbs(10 cm) and could discharge a clotharrow arrow(1m or 3ft).The next was the turkish bow and was a composite-bow of shorter length(1.5-1.7m) which fired a wolfarrow.It was made of horn.yew and glue and with its two arms bieng bend forward against the way of the recurve.The third was an elm bow(short bow).Its lenght is not mentioned and it dischared a scottish barbed arrow.It would seem therefore the difference between the short bow and the longbow is the constuction of wood.So,as long as the bow has a yew construction and measures 2.3 m approx.Then it could therefore be correct to term it as a longbow.The Normans at Hastings used yew stave bows but were only 4 feet tall so are not taken as bieng longbows.http://books.google.com/books?id=utafxJAR63YC&pg=PA50&dq=Robert+Hardy.Longbow+of+Welsh+origin&as_brr=3#v=onepage&q=&f=false .Goodbye--HENRY V OF ENGLAND (talk) 16:48, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Moved from User Mainpage[edit]

I expect that this is very much the wrong place to write this, but I wanted to thank you for your kind words about my work. War in medieval Scotland is, in may ways, a thankless undertaking for a scholar - academics are not really interested in how wars work, only in the political and diplomatic dimensions around them; enthusiaists generally have a fixed idea of the processes of war which they derive from romantic novels and pseudohistory - so you are damned whatever you say - or for what you do not say....I was recently attacked (verbally) by a perfect stranger for failing to give due prominence to the Templars and their 'decisive intervention' at Bannockburn. What can you say? Thank you againd for your kindness; if there is ever anything I cajn do to help you with your studies, do feel free to get in touch.

Re your second discussion point[edit]

I've broken your question about popular culture out into its own section at the bottom of the milhist talk page - I think it was being overlooked where it was. I've also edited the start of your comment slightly (removing the first sentence "Ok, thanks. My starter for ten would be this."), just so it reads consistently for the start of a new section. I'm aware this is a bit of a technical breach of Wikiquette so please accept my apologies and, of course, please revert if you dislike what I've done.

Spear article[edit]

Hi, I see you've done a lot of work on the Spear article, thanks heaps. I was the editor to originally call for a rewrite but I never really followed up so again thanks. I feel it is a pity that the article for what is possibly the most commonly used weapon in history had such a poor article. I'll try and do a bit of a clean up when I get a chance.

Your 3RR report[edit]

I've looked at WP:AN3#Stratioti reported by User:Monstrelet (Result: ). It is hard to take action on a concern which is so vaguely expressed. I do not see any comments by you at Talk:Stratioti. It would be more logical to explain the problem there, before appealing to admins. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 18:30, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

Careful not to accidentally revert when looking at earlier versions of a page as you did here. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 19:33, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
What I'm assuming that you did was to go back to an earlier version of the page that still had your report on it. Then, forgetting that it wasn't the current version, you responded to a comment and saved, trashing everything for the past 4 days. This sound familiar? --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 19:57, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Strateoi etc[edit]

If you can figure out a revision which represents a reasonably neutral and well-sourced version, and can show me why, I'm quite happy to lock the article down completely (=admin only edits) for a while to allow tempers to cool. Buckshot06 (talk) 08:35, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Retrenchment (military)[edit]

This is an automated message from VWBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Retrenchment (military), and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Retrenchment. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. VWBot (talk) 09:45, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Nobility of Nathan Hale (colonel)[edit]

Hey Monstrelet,

I appreciate you taking your time to look and assess the Nathan Hale article. The only thing I can think that makes him notable was that he was one of the commanders and the person who surrendered at the Battle of Hubbardton.

Edit-war around Stratioti[edit]

I feel that I must give some explanations after your comment regarding an edit-war in the article Stratioti. Yes, the historic incident in question may be evaluated as a minor one from the military point of view. But the inflaming quotation is very big. When dealing with history in WP you must have in mind that you may accidentally tackle a national myth. Most nations have one or two of them and Albanians, besides Skanderbeg, have the national myth of continuity of their nation from antiquity till today. Well, you may argue that the Greeks have the same, although this "myth" is more real. The theme of Stratioti is perfect to beef up the existence of an Albanian nation in middle ages, since the term "Albanian" (whatever it means) occurs frequently in relevant sources. So, they overcharged the article with "Albanian stratioti". The occurence of the phrase "We are children of the Greeks" in the mouth of a Stratioti, was an Albanian anticlimax, though, and this is the reason why they are desperate to erase it. On the other hand, the vivid narration of Noukios on foreign mercenaries in England should not be neglected, from the historian's point. One may find there valuable material regarding their lives, their attidutes, military ethics etc. In this quotation you find the invocation of an "ancient glory" which is something rare in a period and place where consciousness of deep-rooted national history barely existed. I hope to see you around and discuss more on the old question "what is the use of history?".--Euzen (talk) 13:34, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

B-Class Checklists[edit]

You said on the MILHIST talkpage that you seem to run into articles that already have B-Class checklists completed. I found that with a lot of battles especially older battles you can run into a redirect that will take you to an article that already has the list completed. That would be my best guess as why you would be running into already complete checklists. Thanks for any help with the completion of checklists. Much Ado, --MOLEY (talk) 01:43, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Erpingham[edit]

If ther 'translation' is a 'common misconception' why is it 1. in the article (I didn't add it, just moved it; and you didn't remove it) 2. why son't you add the correct interpretstion? Paul B (talk) 16:07, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, that my previous comment sounded rather curt. Ah, Hardy. Oddly, the only reason I edited the article was that I'd just been watching the young Hardy playing Henry V in An Age of Kings. Unusually, Erpinghasm is played by the same actor who plays Bardolph. Anyway, that's all rather by the by. At the moment the fact that Erpingham came out with an odd word seems to be just left hanging. I read somewhere thst it might have been something to do with striking in stakes, but I guess the best thing is to give the source, context and the various interpretations.
