No sooner had Prince Micheal recovered the wounds he had suffered during the last convoy escort fight, than he was called to action again. The enemy was on his way to sack another village.
|The arrows began to fly as the Saxons approached the abatis on the bridge and Helgin led his Hearthguard in a fierce charge|
|An overview: the fight at the bridge was long and bloody as the Saxons strove to cross the abatis and force the British back. On the upper right Dearg Mor has just arrived with a troop of his mounted raiders supported by archers and slingers.|
|At last! Many of the Hearthguard were dead or wounded but Helgin and those warriors who could still fight were across the abatis. One more push!|
