One Fleeting Hour Battle of Bannockburn by Peter Traquair

This image depicts page 8 of the "Osprey Military Journal," Volume 2, Issue 1.  It tells the story of the battle of Bannockburn - a key event in Scottish and British history.

The article's title comes from Vita Edwardi Secundi ("The Life of Edward the Second"):

So many fine noblemen and valiant youths, so many noble horses, so much military equipment, costly garments and gold plate - all lost in one unfortunate day - one fleeting hour.

In short ... the Battle of Bannockburn was won by the Scots.
