W 46

46.  Charny asks:   Men at arms leave a place to ride against their enemies and when they are in the field they promise each other to collect booty in common and share it out.  So they ride out and fight and defeat their enemies and gain horses, harness, and money and plenty of other goods, and a large number of good prisoners.  And when it comes to share booty, each brings his gains except for the prisoners.   So many demand that the prisoners should go into the common booty; and others say no.   How should it be judged by the law of arms?
