Chapter Summary

While campaigns were planned in Scotland, preparations for war for England on the Continent took the form at first of observing of fighting around the Calais Pale. French positions had also been reinforced in and around Ardres since 1540 and there had been many minor disputes between England and France in the early 1540s, including extradition matters, decades-old cases of merchants, the Statute of Strangers and above all the border between English and French territory at Calais. The expeditionary force was at first to be commanded by Thomas Cheyney but he proved too cautious and Chapuys pressed for the appointment of John Wallop, initially his deputy, in his place. A new camp was formed at Solesmes and hopes raised that Landrecies could be taken by surprise and, if not, to fortify a camp.
