499 years ago!
As the SNP are building up to huge celebrations across Scotland, of the 800th anniversary of the defeat of an invading English at Bannockburn, spare a thought for the anniversaries of the many battles fought to defeat invading Scottish armies.
9th September is the anniversary of the Battle of Flodden Field when one of the last of many invading Scottish Armies was smashed, in 1513. Here is a link to the wikipedia account which is worth reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Flodden
Next year will be its 500th anniversary. What should English nationalists do to mark the occasion?
