Today in Tradgardland
In spite of the War Clouds overhanging the Duchy ,Karl Frederick was entranced ( along with the Ducal court) by two enthusiastic bowman (pictured right) from the Royal Company of Archers. The two young men,residents of Smegby and exiled from Edinburgh due to their political sympathies, thrilled the onlookers with a display of both accuracy and speed. A trial of target shooting , in competition against some Ducal soldiers, left a few embarrassed Tradgardian faces.
The Duke was presented with a number of longbows and arrows, as well as offers of support from the archers themselves.A number of army officers pressed the aforementioned archers to join them for dinner and further discussions.
