I read in a history book that it was when the welsh archers would shoot the english and stick their fingers up to show they still had their fingers to fire bows. However while watching “QI” it was stated that this is not true. However QI have been known to be wrong. I looked up information and found six sources backing up the archers V. Only one source backed up QI and that was QI itself. I’m pretty sure that QI are wrong and the 3 websites, primary source drawing and two history books are right. However I out this here just to double check. Please help me out with what u no guys.
