W 45

45.  Charny asks:   So men at arms ride out against their enemies and all promise to take booty together in the field.  So it happens that they fight and are on the point of being defeated and killed; and many of them are taken and some of them leave.  But chance brings about in the end that those who were losing at first defeat the others and kill and capture and gain much, and take possession of the field.   When they are all at the hotel they bring their booty and come to share it out, some of those who left come to the booty to have a share; and the others say no.   How should it be according to the law of arms?
