On Monday in a Battlefield court following the field battles, the following combatants received an Award of the Dragon’s Tooth for being in the vanguard that overcame the King of the East: Sir Wigthegn, Dafydd Myddleton, Sviatoslav Arturovich.

The Cleftlands Rapier as a unit received a token of thanks from the command staff for fighting with the East to balance the numbers and fighting during the woods battle.

And not to overlook some of the truest heroes on the field, a very dear thank you to the Cleftlands Hospitality Corps led by Baroness Angharad ferch Tangwystl.
