Independence and Freedom are Eternal Themes within Our World Legends. One such put into prose by Poets is that of the Scots. Victory over the invading English acclaimed at Bannockburn. A Tale of desperation and great odds withstood as a Nation fights for Unity against oppression and the accompanying massive Army. Herein. The Battle. That Day. The Robert Burns Poem after. As well.


Our Earth itself trembled That Day. Scotland.

At Bannockburn, that is. Of Yore.



Freedom called.

Rather loudly. That Day.

That Day. 1314.

Which is and was. Within War. The


heady, heavy soundings of Hoofs

The Cavalry. So named. ‘Twas. Then. Of Yore.


A cascading Cavalry of Light and Heavy Armor and Troops.

Horses, Riders. Both. Fully prepped and practiced by now.

Moving in easy, familiar patterns of unison. These Lands

The threatening Army they faced was rampaging so close and hard.

A King led therein. Thereof the Scots did so to resolve. To

remove. Then

many Thousands and more of such Kingsmen did come forth

and so

ride across. Cross English Borders into these. Their Scots

That Freedom Train.ing



Armored Knights on War-Horses were/are the Tank Battalions

of their Ways

and Days of Yore. A solid phalanx of these Armored Riders

and Creatures would be used to smash through much and many

Defensive Formations


and even some and so into War Objective Structures.


A very solid attack and attacking Style, Technique and Approach. Of

much Mass

with Men on board as well. Weaponry could be varied to suit.

For the initial and thereafter therein.

Herein then as well it so seems.


The Battle of Bannockburn.




England v Scotland.


Edward 2 + Troops v Robert

the Bruce (de Brus) + co.


Kings and Country of both. At War

that is. That Day. Of Yore. 1314.



A War of… Independence indeed. In deed

and in fact too. To battle that out, eventually,..

at Bannockburn. Scotland of Yore. Within.


The series of skirmishes prior to the Main Battle all went

Scotland’s Ways.

Though massively outnumbered,..

some 3:1 or more…

the Scots tactics were winning That Day. From that

early dawn.


By simply moving.

With good Timing and Defense therein.


This allowed the English superior numbers

no Times and Places. To rest. Or

keep in Battle Attack Formation either.


Remaining very Organised, the Scots maneuvers crowded

the English into areas so and then unsuited to such mass.


Then strung out

the English Troops Front along a River and Roadway

was done

and so on and so forth. Forthrightly


too and then forced into.



The Bannockburn.

All the whiles led on by those wily Scots of Robert. The

Bruce that is. Not the i, Shiro kind therein and thereof.


The Bannockburn. Typical Wetlands and Marshy Ground that is. Also. Also

therein the Scottish Spears and Infantrymen per se…

ran riot it seems. Eventually the English straggled and struggled to

reform. Reformed,.. then and so too,.. crammed and crushed


with the Bannockburn on three of their sides. Robert

the Bruce + co. The Other. Side that is.


Hemmed in By Mother Nature. Scottish

of Yore… now too. To the Place of Bannockburn. June

1314 Times thereof and therein.


An Independence Day.


That Day



(Music Link)



is One whereby Poets do well and so eulogise. Herein. As well

a Day when Scottish ploys of Martialness, Strategy and Tactics,

those of War did so flow and Work. Worked well

and those

Freedoms that follow too,.. played

out. Dashing those o so dashing Troops of England,

so fair and green. Then and thus


The English Army stymied at every turn. Archers

decimated by the constantly moving Scots Cavalry. Cavalry

charges annulled by Scottish Formations standing

Pikes&Spears tall and firm. With


Bannockburn Landscape/Features hampering the English charges

and chargers. So favoring the smaller, compact and highly mobile

Scots Defenses. Then with these


Spear/Pike Men-moving again before a Target they became. For

when then the Archers/Infantry/or Cavalry did so. So

the Scottish Knights and

The Cavalry quickly moved back to harry that idea Whilst

again, ‘cos smaller numbers. Able to and so


keeping within. The Bannockburn.



Welcome So,
To Your Gory Bed
Or To Victorie.

The English Knights so straggled slow to get into Formations

across the Bannockburn sodden Lands, oft falling over their

Owns or getting in the Ways of their Own Troops and Support.


Soon found themselves facing Corps/groups Of Pikes and Spear

Men-at-Arms in a Schiltron Style. Pikes out porcupine style.

Ways too long aways for Sword Knights to attack and so forth.

Wet underfoot, Ways slow, Horses tire easier.

Several compounding precise flaws exposed.


Martial Moves and Counters that were appropriate. Were

so applied. That Day.


The Scots… battling for Country and Kin. For their very

Lives and Lands within. Used those same Lands Shape, Design.


To stymie the various English attacks with great Defense

and Attack Timing

and then correct Counter, Evasion or Attack. Applied. When required.

At every twist and turn. The English did play and pay.

That Day. At Bannockburn.  Never


to so again. So return. So



‘Tis and was… time. Time

for a Final Battle. A Times and Places to wax lyrical. Lyrics

“… At Bannockburn did the English lay

The Scots they were not far away

But waited for that break o’ Day

That glinted in the East.


But soon the Sun broke through the heath

And lighted up that Field of Death

When Bruce, with soul-inspiring breath

His Heralds so thus addressed:


Scots who have with Wallace bled-

Scots with whom Bruce has aften led-

Welcome so, to Your gory bed

Or to Victorie.


Now’s the Day and now’s the Hour

See the Front of Battle, lower

See approach proud Edward’s Power

Of chains and slaverie.


Who here will be a traitor knave

Who can so fill a cowards grave

Who so base as be a slave

Let Him so turn and flee.


Who will for Scotland’s King and Law

Freedoms Sword will so strongly draw

Freeman stand or Freeman be

Let Him then follow me.


By Oppressions woes and pains

By Your Sons in servile chains

We will drain our dearest veins

But They, shall be Free.


Lay these proud usurpers low

Tyrants fall in every foe

Liberty in every blow.


Let Us Do, or Die.”
