British Pathé Tuesday

29 April, 2014

It’s British Pathé Tuesday, and time for some Cholmondley Warner-style bowmaking, fletching and archery from 1961 in glorious Technicolor, fetching outfits, and staggeringly RP accents. Enjoy.

    The accent threw me at the end (2:57):

    “Such is the skill of these archers, such is the accuracy of their bows, that we *rarely* get a bullseye view”.

    Re-listening it must be ‘really’, not ‘rarely’.

    Now, must get a turkey and some white fletching gloves…
