Battle of the Spurs.

1 Fought in 1302 near Courtrai, Belgium, between the rebellious Flemish towns, led by Bruges, and an army sent by Philip IV of France, who had annexed Flanders in 1301. The French were totally defeated. The spurs taken from the fallen French knights formed so huge a trophy that they gave the battle its name. 2 Won in 1513 by the English under Henry VIII over the French, at Guinegate, N France. This second battle received its name possibly because of the speedy flight of the French cavalry.
