To the sheriff of Kent. Order to cause proclamation to be made in the hundreds of Larkefelde, Filbarowe, Strete, Newecherche and Worthe, that all lieges who ought and are bound to do watch and ward shall at their peril do it at a place called 'Brodehill' by the sea in the parts of 'Romneymersshe,' as used to be done of old time upon threat of war; as the king is informed that divers lieges of those hundreds used there to do watch and ward for defence of those parts against sudden attack and invasion, and are yet bound to do it; and the king's will is to make provision for such defence, as he is bound to do, that no hurt or peril arise for lack of watch and ward, especially in this time of war.
