Ok...how about this?

Incident: The death of King Richard III
Battle: The Battle of Bosworth, 1485

I know why you came up with that one and it is a good guess but sorry, still incorrect.

Here's a hint: Why do you think Doody and I would be more inclined to know this one?

I've figured it has something to do with Field Artillery and the fact that the old guns were horse-drawn - but after that - no idea..

Okay, time for another clue.

82ndMechanic is half right.

Charge 7
 
 
Okay, time for another hint.

The Brits out there will kick themselves if one of them doesn't get this and no, it's still not Richard III at Bosworth.

One last hint and I will also raise the value of a correct answer to 250 milbucks. You have until the weekend is over before I state the correct answer and start a new round.

I will merely reference the clues thus far. What relationship might there be with nails, cannons, and horses?

oh was it anything to do with the second battle of ypres? (sp) and the fact that the germans were so close that shell timers were set to zero.

[EDIT] actually now i think thats wrong, its too late in history i think, and i dunno if there was an incident or w/e. yeah im stuck on this one.

Yes, much too late.
