Schild & Vriend

'Schild en Vriend' is an old Flemish battlecry, used in the rebellion of the city of Brugge against the French, May 18, 1302. Legend tells that it was used to differentiate between the French-speaking (who could not pronounce 'schild') and Flemish-speaking citizens. Nowadays, historians tell us that it was probably 'Des Gilden Vriend'.

01 Dec 2002
After a long hiatus, these pages are slowly taking on the appearance of being alive again. Changes are currently still limited to maintenance, but one major change is that we have dropped the links section. There are now sites on the net that do a far better job of linking to other wargame sites (see, for example the Newark Irregulars who have an extensive links section), and our links were seriously outdated after three years anyway. Expect other changes soon.

For a nostalgic look at earlier updates, look here.
