Why Richard's Army?
The North Mercia Branch are proud to call themselves members of Richard’s Army – a title given by Philippa Langley to all those who contributed to the Greyfriars ‘Dig’ in Leicester. The group contributed as a whole as did individual members. Philippa acknowledges this in her book, 'The Search for Richard III - The King's Grave'. Inspired by this and a reflection of the group's dedication, our domain name became www.richardsarmy.co.uk
Marion Moulton from the North Mercia Group and Helen Ashburn from the Greater Manchester Branch meet Philippa Langley and Michael Jones for the launch of the book - 'The Search for Richard III - 'The King's Grave'
