Robin of Sherwood Poster

Robin Hood’s Merry Men Character Description Poster

I have not seen any internet scans of the original poster that i photocopied years ago. My copy was too dark so i am just going to show the same image (good color version from the internet) and post the text details about the characters from the poster. I had to edit the details because the bottom of the page was cut off.

Character Description from Left to Right

This Derbyshire giant was once a shepherd. Then became a servant of the Baron de Belleme. He was sent to kill Robin Hood. After the fierce battle of the log bridge, Robin freed him from his bondage to the Baron, and persuaded him to join his band of outlaws. Little John breaks all the Norman laws he can.
