Mystery 111111

Today is Veterans Day, originally noted as Armistice Day (or Remembrance Day)  to commemmorate the end of hostilities on the western front of World War I at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.

Today’s prompt comes from the St. Crispin’s Day speech in Shakespeare’s Henry V, written in 1599:

And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap

You can read the entire speech by clicking the title a few lines above, or hear the it as interpreted by Kenneth Branagh:
