Flodden Wall at Greyfriars Kirk, Edinburgh, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Flodden Wall in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Flodden is the name of a major battle fought in Branxton, Northumberland, England on September 9th 1513 between an invading Sots army under King James IV and an English army under the Earl of Surrey. The Scots were numerically superior but, due to poor generalship, suffered a massive defeat extending to, possibly, 10,000 casualties vs 1700 on the English side. James IV was killed on the battlefield.
