Bows used by English archers were called LONGBOWS. The middle finger was used to stretch the bow. It was effective for a range of 250-300 meters. These bows were used from an early age. On the other hand, the French used roller bows. When the British and French faced each other, the middle fingers of the British archers meant “the arrow I shoot with this finger will take you to a suitable place”. In addition, the French cut off the middle fingers of the English archers they captured if they failed to kill them.
