To celebrate this anniversary I put together a scenario based on the battle and fought it out using my "Lord of the Sea" medieval rules. What follows are a few snaps of the battle.
For anyone interested in trying out this battle I've uploaded the scenario to Wargame Vault
Battle of Sandwich 1217
The French cargo ships. De Burgh avoided these juicy targets and headed for Eustace's flagship instead
Hubert's ship (actually the Royal flagship from my Sluys collection)
French warships making a run for it
French merchants in the lead, the French warships sit between them and the English fleet
Hughbert's flagship encounters the flagship of Eustace the Monk. In the ensuing melee Eustace again found himself despatched. Hstory repeats itself!
