W 10

10. Charny asks:   A captain rides with well-ordered battalions before a good city of his enemies, and this captain has it announced that none should leave his formation.   And while they are passing before this city many men at arms from the city show themselves outside the barriers.   And some of the men at arms of the captain passing before this city strike their spurs against the men at arms of the city who have come out, and lose many of their horses and reassemble in their battalion before their captain.  When they come back they ask for  compensation for their horses, and the captain says no.   Many good arguments are put forward about it on one side or the other.  How will it be judged by the law of arms?
