Robin Hood shoot with Sir Guy by Louis Rhead 1912

Swear to despoil the rich, only to give to the poor,
to shelter the old and the helpless,
to protect all women, rich or poor, Norman or Saxon.
To swear to fight for a free England,
to protect her loyally, until the return of
our king and sovereign Richard the Lion Heart.
And to swear to fight to the death against our oppressors

Robin Hood
