Sir Ranulph Fiennes' dynamic account of the conflict of Agincourt supplies a different standpoint on the most major battles in English history.

On twenty fifth October 1415, on a French hillside close to the village of Agincourt, 4 males sheltered from the rain and ready for conflict. All 4 have been English knights―ancestors of Sir Ranulph Fiennes―and a part of the military of England's King Henry V. around the valley, 4 sons of the French arm of the Fiennes relations have been convinced that the Dauphin's military might win the day . . .

Solid line to left of map represents position of lunar limb at end of occultation. Solid contour lines represent radio source. 36 J. L. CULHANE It would appear from the observed dependence of source size on photon energy and from the general nature of the X-ray surface brightness distribution that relativistic electrons, directly injected by the pulsar into the nebula, are not responsible for the X-rays.

The mean wavelength of the absorption feature in spectra of 11 Txpe I supernovae is 6125~; the weighted rest wavelength of the doublet, 6355 A, then corresponds to a velocity of 10,900 km s-l. This is in accord with other line identifications (Ca ", Fe ", Na I) which have been suggested. Gordon (1972) identifies the feature with He, but then the corresponding velocity is 20,000 km s-l. If the density gradient at the photosphere is steep, the lines will tend to be formed near the photosphere. In this case the relative LlE line strengths at the photosphere should give a rough idea of which lines are to be expected.

INTRODUCTION Supernova remnants were the first class of X-ray emitting objects to be positively identified. Indeed they were the only sources of X-ray emission to be predicted as such before the beginning of observational X-ray astronomy in 1962. While the use of X-ray detection systems on sounding rockets lead to a number of advances in the study of remnants, spectacular progress has followed the availability of satell~te borne instruments.
