1345, Sir John Tuchet, serving in Gascony under the Earl of Derby, was sent with the Earl of Pembroke and 40 other knights and squires, and 300 men-at-arms and archers, to defend Aiguillon from an invading French force. At the castle they joined about 120 soldiers already there. The duke of Normandy, son of the king of France, arrived with a large French force and began a siege. The French attempted to build a bridge over the adjoining rever Garonne, but the English delayed construction by repeated attacks on the workmen. The completion of the bridge did not give the French the advantage they sought, so the Duke sent for battering engines which were used to cast stones into the fortress. The next attempt by the French was to use siege towers, higher than the walls, to be brought to the castle from the river. The English were able to destroy them with “martinets” which cast large stones. [The were plenty of stones available from the French attacks.]
