    Military terms

    Can anyone tell me if the English military terms in the Early Middle Ages were the same as today? I.e. army, infantry, cavalry etc.?

    They definitely didn't have Royal Tank Regiments, The Royal Air Force and The Royal Navy at the time ... ;-)
    They neither had the RLC (Royal Logistics Corps) which used to be RCT (Royal Corps of Transport), etc.

    Andererseits sind heutzutage Hobelars oder Skirmishers wohl eher selten anzutreffen...

    Thank you Wolfman for your revealing comment. Warfare could not have been much fun without tanks and aircraft ;-)

    Dritte Schicht your link is really helpful.

    Thanks to both of you.
