Cry God For Harry, England And St George
Today I had to go to Market Bosworth for the day. It's in Leicestershire and the area is famous for the Battle of Bosworth Field; the final 'Wars of the Roses' where Henry V beat Richard III in August 1485.
I just hope it wasn't as hot then as it was today, otherwise they would all have died of heatstroke and dehydration, never mind by bow and arrow or sword. The temperature gauge in my car showed 30.3*C. Hot enough to fry an egg on the bonnet. We're off to Dubai at the end of the month, so I expect it will be even hotter there.
