The mounted Norman knights are now in full charge. Notice that Norman soldiers, with only one exception, are always depicted fighting on horseback (cavalry) and the English soldiers are depicted only fighting on foot (infantry). The man in front of the archer might be identified as Raoul de Toeni, a nobleman of the house of Tosny, son of Roger I of Tosny. The family of de Toeni held the honourable office of standard bearer of Normandy. Tradition says he gave up the role of his hereditary office to Walter Giffard, claiming to William that he would be more effective fighting the English.
