Private Archery club..
The Royal Company of Archers is a ceremonial unit that serves as the Sovereign's Bodyguard in Scotland, a role it has performed since 1822 and the reign of King George IV, when the company provided a personal bodyguard to the King on his visit to Scotland.. It is currently known as the Queen's Bodyguard For Scotland, and is located in Edinburgh, the capital city..The Royal Company of Archers were granted the motto "Nemo me impune lacessit" by a Royal charter of Queen Anne, 1713..

The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)..

The Company's traditions relate to its reason for formation, the archery competition.. To further this, it offers 13 prizes that were at some time in the past competed for annually.. Many are retained to the present day..The Rules and Regulations of the Royal Company of Archers have never been printed, and, in fact, were never completed.. The society may, therefore, be considered as "lawless" when within the precincts of their shooting ground..

Building commenced on 15 August 1776, and was completed in 1777 to designs by Alexander Laing..The Archers is the world's longest-running radio soap opera..Originally billed as "an everyday story of country folk", it is now described as "contemporary drama in a rural setting"... sister was born of that whore, Anne Boleyn!. She was born a bastard!..She will never rule England!..Hm, I understand..It is hard for a woman to forget her heart...
