Does anyone have information on the size and/or composition of the Scottish contingent that formed part of Margaret's army in the 1460-61 campaign? I have read that it was led by the Earl of Douglas, and I know that Margaret spent Christmas 1460 in Scotland and was not present at Wakefield. But some of my sources have her leading the Scots south prior to Wakefield and then returning to Scotland, while others have them accompanying her only after the New Year.

Additionally, is there any record of what happened to them after 2nd St Albans? Did they return home, or did any of them stick around for Towton?
