Eric Knowles Comments

A spectacular design featuring the Oak leaf and acorns synonymous with the celebrated Boscobel ‘Royal Oak’ where King Charles II  hid together with Colonel Careless from Cromwells patrols following his defeat in 1651 at the Battle of Worcester. After the Restoration King Charles related this episode to Samuel Pepys explaining that the Parliamentarian cavalry actually passed beneath the tree whilst he and Careless remained out of their sight. ”The Royal Oak’ tree was to later prove a popular name given to many a tavern throughout England and Wales.
