South Wilts Lost in France Shoot – 3 September 2017

110 archers set off in the rain to shoot our 40 target, themed, timeline course. At least this time the weather was right for the Agincourt targets! The course was a combination of our previous 100 Years War and Agincourt Shoots. Lost in France? Well the history of the 100 Years War shows that we English & Welsh & Cornish were a bit ‘lost’ by the end, having lost most of our continental possessions!

22 of the targets were Paul Summerfield’s wonderful medieval painted hessian faces, with a couple also by Mike Pruitt. There were also 16 x 3Ds. Story boards at the target number (except for 3Ds) gave brief details of the Date & Battle each target represented and in some cases the character on the target included the coat of arms of a particular knight who had been killed or captured in that Battle. A picture of the target showing the kill was included under the story board. The costumes that some wore all added to the flavour of the occasion, albeit they got a bit soggy! Thanks to Pat Vince for being our Lady P. Thank you all for coming to share the day with us. Yet again the whole SWAC Team did a great job, so many thanks to for all your hard work.
