To cover his retreat
Salisbury (being armed by two lackeys for the decisive battle of the next General Election)-"Hang it, man, you are setting my shield on the wrong side. It should be in front, over my heart." / Dis-Hartington:-"I konw where your heart is better than yourself. The first duty of a prudent warrior going into battle is to 'cover his retreat.' "/
J. D. Reigh.
