We asked you to come up with something appropriately witty for this image from our article on Robert the Bruce in the June/July 2024 issue of Military History Matters. Here are the winners:


‘… and over there I want a herb garden.’ – Cristina McDowall


‘ Is your intention to skirt the enemy?’ – Michael Smith

‘… and DO NOT forget to bring me back a pint!’ – Daniel Biron

Feeling lucky? Then enter our latest competition! We’re giving away three copies of NATO: from Cold War to Ukraine by Sten Rynning, courtesy Yale University Press. Enter here.


  1. We’ve lost ten thousand troops so far but don’t let that drain the colour from your faces.

  2. I’m telling you guys for the last time. Make a left down the street at the diner, than a sharp right for two more blocks. That’s where the battle will be.

  3. ‘You lot will lead the charge on foot, but don’t worry, you won’t be standing for long!’

  4. It’s always a bit embarrassing when you turn up to a do in the same skirt as somebody else.
