The following extract from a Note in P. [page] 31 of Sibbald's Fife may refer to this Battle.

OS1/13/74/1/58 58 [No Header] [Remarks for Standing Stone - Continued.] " Country. A party of English sent to invade Scotland by Sea anchored off Inverkeithing in this County. The Earl of Fife and the Sherriff of the County having 500 Men under their command, attempted to oppose the landing but intimidated by the number of the English they made a precipitate retreat. William Sinclair, Bishop of Dunkeld happened to meet the fugitives. "Whither are you flying" said he to the Commanders. "You deserve to have your gilt spurs hacked off" then throwing aside his Ecclesiastical Vestment he seized a spear and cried "Who loves Scotland follow me" he led the Scots again to the charge and impetuously attacked the enemy, who had not completed their landing. The English gave way and were driven to their ships with considerable loss." I have made inquiry about the site of this battle but it cannot be pointed out M. Kinsela C.A. [Civil Assistant]
