WILLIAM WALLACE – Off to Falkirk

Here is my latest commander for the Scottish during the Scottish Wars of Independence.

Wallace and Andrew Moray (still on the to do list) defeated an English army at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. He was defeated a year later at the Battle of Falkirk. Although he escaped from the field, in August 1305, Wallace was captured near Glasgow. He was handed over to Edward I, tried for high treason (not sure how fair the trial was) found guilty (not a surprise to most) to which the sentence was to be hanged, drawn and quartered.

He was a knight so no wold in sight.

Wallace is a Ebob figure while his assistant is an Old Glory figure. The monks are from Blacktree. As with all commanders, the flags are home made, thanks to ms paint. The sign post is pure theatrical.
