The White Company indeed! Mercs and Moors and stout-hearted Englishmen! Fine stuff.

The Black Arrow, btw, is my very favorite of those illustrated by NC. And the prep school I attended in Delaware has a mural of his that covers a wall in the dining hall. Pale Christian boys adoring a madonna figure, while captains of industry and pillars of the Episcopal Church are inspired by Christopher Wren and his ilk to create a little slice of England in a cornfield in Delaware. Most kids to day think it looks like Hogwarts.

Dear Berks. ,
My guesses are THE WHITE COMPANY or SIR NIGEL .

P.S. Now if they brandished crossbows it would be THE BLACK ARROW

Are we talking The White Company? http://www.amazon.com/White-Company-Books-Wonder/dp/0688078176

NC indeed, but not A Boy's King Arthur (though I have and love that volume as well). What if I told you that the author was a fellow better known for the denizens of 221B Baker St.?

Sissy Willis

A Boy's King Arthur :-)

Sissy Willis

Oh, my. I'm totally intrigued. Back to the Googleboard!

Not NC?

Tim Abbott

Same school of illustrating, but not Pyle!

Sissy Willis

It looks like one of Howard Pyle's King Arthur illustrations . . . I haven't read them but HAVE studied years ago under illustrator Norman Baer, a follower of Pyle's way of "seeing."
