Sir Reginald Cobham, KG and Sir Ralph Stafford, KG

Here are two more BTD foot knights - painted up as Sir Reginald Cobham and Sir Ralph Stafford. Their simple, and similar, coats of arms belie their fame on the battlefield. Both were long-serving and reliable commanders for Edward III and the Prince of Wales. Both knights served in Scotland and were present at Crecy and Poitiers. According to Froissart, Sir Reginald killed Sir Geoffrey de Charny, the bearer of the Oriflamme, at Poitiers.
Both are from the BTD Early-HYW range, and picked up when they were 50% discounted. Coincidentally, they are again on 50% sale at the moment.
