Livery Badges – Julian Humphrys

This Friday's video is a fascinating look into livery badges and a special focus on the white boar badge that was used by Richard III's household and followers and which was found at the site of the Bosworth battle.

    Another fascinating video (and not at all ‘boar-ing’ – ouch!), thanks Julian. Lovely to see the Lord Leycester Hospital too – one of my favourite places.

    Thanks, Tracy. I love that place as well especially the tea room!

    What a great video, Julian. I agree that Colleton badge is more likely a Courtney badge. The Courtneys aren’t as controversial as Richard here in my native Devon. Thanks for a very interesting 15 minutes. I really must find out more about the subject.

    Very interesting talk. Who knew that boars were so popular?

    Thanks for the kind comments. I forgot to say what the chronicler Thomas of Ottorborne writes about the death of Robert de Vere, 9th earl of Oxford. He says he was killed by a wild boar!
