Agincourt Mug

A limited edition of 600 mugs was produced to commemorate the 600th anniversary of the battle of Agincourt in 2015.  The mug displays the Coat of Arms of the Worshipful Company of Fletchers, the Agincourt Coat of Arms, and the Agincourt 600 commemorative badge.  The sale of the mugs raised money for the Fletchers’ Charitable Trust, which supports archery for people with disabilities.

Several events were held to mark the 600th anniversary, including a dinner at the Guildhall in London, lectures and a service at Westminster Abbey.  The Fletchers also arranged an essay writing competition which was entered by six schools, with the title “Why has the Battle of Agincourt resonated through English and British history for the last 600 years and why does it have relevance today?”  The winner of the competition attended the City of London Freemen’s School and was presented with an arrow and £100 for the school’s charity.

To close the Agincourt year, a dinner was held at Cutlers’ Hall in April 2016 in the presence of Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent and attended by all five Warrior Companies.
