¶ Supernatural fantasy, written as a true story, now the stuff of legend. First published in 'The Evening News' after the Battle of Mons in 1914, it told how British troops were miraculously rescued from the Germans by a ghostly St. George and his bowmen of Agincourt. Widely accepted as true, the incident is regularly referred to in books of occult lore and histories of the Great War.
