The English were barely given time to draw breath, before Douglas and Randolph both gave the order for their infantry to join those led by Edward Bruce. All three divisions charged down the escarpment, heading straight for the front lines of the English army.
Exhausted, stiff and some quite soggy from wading through the Bannock Burn to get there, the English weren't exactly quick on the uptake. The Scots plowed into them, coming dangerously close to Edward II himself.
As was the norm, the lethal Welsh archers began unleashing a volley of arrows onto their fellow Celts. But the bottle-neck configuration of the English front line - forced into being by the 'pots' lining the wayside - meant that their own side couldn't get out of the way fast enough.
The Welsh killed more English at Bannockburn, than they ever did Scots. Which has given more than one historian some pause for thought.
Nor could the English infantry make it through to relieve the knights fighting in brutal hand to hand combat. There was very little room to maneuver. For those trapped at the front, it was fight until death with no other possible recourse.
