Peel Agincourt Diary: 15 November

The king is to sail for England tomorrow. With King Henry gone, it is certain that the army will not march again this year. God be praised that our trials are coming to an end.

Our company will not sail with the king for there are not enough ships to be had to take all of our men, horses, and prisoners across the sea. Because of this, King Henry has provided that each man shall receive a sum of 2 shillings and a further 2 shillings per horse to pay for the cost of the voyage back to England. Sir Geoffrey and all his gentlemen have gone to see what may be done about arranging our passage.
