      Yes, it was loads of fun - I did the 'carolling for cider, claret &
      craft ale' for the first time this War, and want to thank the gentle
      who invited the KWChoir at practise Sunday to come along! Now that I
      have a copy of the music, I'll be practising it during the year so
      that I'm not relying on the sheet music and iffy flashlight so much.

      "Banbury ale! Where, where, where? At the blacksmith's house. I
      would I were there!"

        Google and Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L'homme_arm%C3%A9

        Original French
        L'homme, l'homme, l'homme armé,
        L'homme armé
        L'homme armé doibt on doubter, doibt on doubter.
        On a fait partout crier,
        Que chascun se viengne armer
        D'un haubregon de fer.

        The man, the man, the armed man,
        The armed man
        The armed man should be feared, should be feared.
        Everywhere it has been proclaimed
        That each man shall arm himself
        With a coat of iron mail.
