Sir John Chandos
Recommended Reading: Chronicles of Froissart, Life and Campaigns of the Black Prince by Richard Barber (contains a translation of the Chandos Herald)
A memorial to John Chandos is on the D25 just south of the N147 and west of Lussac-les-Châteaux
The Royal Armouries collection has the "Chandos" helm, this may be associated with Herefordshire as it is thought to have been made for Pembridge's contemporary, Sir John Chandos of Snodhill Castle.
Chandos has appeared in several mediums of modern media: in the 1955 Errol Flynn film “The Dark Avenger” also known as The Warriors”, in the video game called bladestorm where he acts as an advisor to the Black Prince and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has two books with Chandos as a recurring character; The Whyte Company and Sir Nigel.
