Take No Prisoners

Remember the expression: ‘Take no prisoners’ ?

Well that was the order which came from King Henry V during the Battle of Agincourt.

So several thousand French prisoners were slaughtered. While only those that were ransomable got saved.

During the last British budget One Millions pounds was put to one side for a public celebration of the battle.

Perhaps a few people might like to turn up in chains at these ‘celebrations’, and play dead.

That really would make the point as to just what happened on October 25th 1415.
