A Conversation for The Battle of Agincourt, 1415

Great entry, my compliments.

One comment and one question.

In the first line, 'UK' is both wrong and unnecessary.

You write that Henry 'saved' the Earl of Oxford, who had fallen, wounded. Certainly Oxford, as a principal commander, played a very prominent role at Agincourt and was instrumental in the famous victory. But I have not heard the story that he was saved on the battlefield by the king. Do you have a source for this?
