!!! THE THIRD WAVE OF CAPTURE !!!!!!
Dear Brethren of Wessex On Tiwesdæg (Tuesday) the twelfth day of Haligmonað the Saxon name for September in the great year of two thousand and seventeen, a brave band of warriors from the Court of King Cerdic numbered eighty-two in the records of our noble king Æthelstan, Rex Britannicus, rode feverishly from the ancient Devonian market town of Hunytown to Malmesbury the oldest borough in England to join an assembly of warlords within the local Court numbered one hundred. 
The members of the Malmesbury Court greeted their visiting warriors with much good ceremony and, when formal Court matters were at an end, one of the Elders of the Court of King Cerdic, scribe Christopholus of Wilmington, declared that the document held in his possession confirmed that the required number of warriors were present and could legally mount a challenge to remove the ancient and sacred Bee-hive from Malmesbury and return it to its rightful place of construction in Hunytown. The Court of King Cerdic’s leader, a fearless warrior called Roburt of Colyton, stood and demanded possession of the ancient and sacred Bee-hive that was safely held within the Court. As an offer of appeasement he promised to release the inhabitants, declaring them inferior to Colyton bees, but would retain the honey in case it was any good! He was accompanied by David - D’Whiskers of Exmouth the Bee-Hive’s creator and six other noble warriors all heavily armed for battle. After much hearty feasting, drinking and merriment, the noble warriors from Hunytown returned with their trophy to be kept safe from marauding vagrants and scurvy knaves to await the challenge from another Court to claim its capture in the true spirit of visiting.
