Peel Agincourt Diary: 24 November

Last night word came to where we stayed in London that the last of ships carrying the men-at-arms and archers who fought at the great battle at Agincourt have made port at Dover. It seems the king’s great adventure has come to its end. Most of our company is already on the road home. We stayed here, at no small cost, for Sir Geoffrey wishes to attend this day’s solemn Requiem at St. Paul’s Cathedral, which the king had ordered to be held to pray for the dead on both sides in the battle of Agincourt. After we pray for the souls of the departed at St. Paul’s, we will begin the journey back to Dunbury. God give us safe travel.
