Excerpt from The Battle of Flodden and the Raids of 1513
Again, only a little consideration of the few known facts suffices to explain the part played by the Borderers on the other ¿ank of the Scottish army. The charge of treasonable apathy, in not moving to the King's assist... ance, so generally levelled against their commander, Lord Home, melts into thin air, and we see in him a wise and gallant soldier, maintaining to the last a front to the foe, covering the retreat of a shattered army, and defending the Scottish frontier with a spear which was not shivered,' with a shield which was not broken.' That he was disloyal to his country or to his king, that he was unworthy of the great name he bore, there is not one tittle of evidence.
