ST. GEORGE'S DAY - 23rd April

ST. George is the Patron Saint of England and its day is England's National Day.

Listen to his story told by Millie, age 4 :

This saint's name was shouted as a battle cry by English knights who fought beneath the red-cross banner of St. George during the Hundred Years War (1338-1453). 
This is immortalized in Shakespeare's play Henry V.
