St Crispins Day

Today is the feast of St Crispin.

600 years ago the battle of Agincourt was fought and won by Henry V.  Immortalised by Shakespeare, the idea of "we few" and "we band of brothers" has become a powerful message in war and adversity.

Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.[2]

Unfortunately "**** off its 6mm!" will take some time to achieve such cultural significance.
