The Angels of Mons is a popular legend about a group of angels who supposedly protected members of the British army in the Battle of Mons at the outset of World War I.On 29 September 1914, Welsh author Arthur Machen published a short story entitled “The Bowmen” in the London newspaper The Evening News, inspired by accounts that he had read of the fighting at Mons and an idea he had had soon after the battle. The story described phantom bowmen from the Battle of Agincourt summoned by a soldier calling on Saint George, destroying a German host. Machen's story was not however labelled as fiction and the same edition of the Evening News ran a story by a different author under the heading "Our Short Story." Readers who thought it was true, to which he responded that it was completely imaginary, as he had no desire to create a hoax.
