  • England will be MINE!!!!
  • The Spanish are coming, they are coming to attack!
  • The Spanish are attacking! Why did no one tell me!!
  • We tried sir, but you were to consumed with your bowls game.
  • 170 ships set out from Lisbon sailing together in a crescent shape which the English would find difficult to attack.
  • The Spanish are spotted off Cornwall on 29 July 1588. The English launch their ships and got to chase the Spanish through the channel but don't sink a single ship.
  • Sir Francis Drake was playing bowls when the Spanish arrived and he didn't pay any interest in them till his bowls game was over.
  • The Spanish arrive in Calais 5th August 1588. They wait for the other Spanish soldiers from the Spanish Netherlands to arrive, but they don't show up!
  • Sir Francis Drake catches up with the Spanish and attacks them with fireships- old, empty ships filled with straw and set alight, they sail towards the Spanish who panic when they see them and get him.
  • Frightened by the fireships, the Spanish scatter across the North sea, but the fast English ships attack again and again.
