Britain's fabulous '15's, Waterloo and otherwise

     Our previous post on the Waterloo campaign of 1815, and the more previous post about Magna Carta 800, remind us that Britain has an interesting habit of doing well in years ending in "15". Besides the Mag Cart and Waterloo, there's also the battle of Agincourt in 1415: another victory against France, just like 400 years later! plus St. Crispin's Day, Shakespeare's Henry V, etc. Is there a pattern here?
     "God save the Brit!"
