|Behind the scenes|
Hanged by Vaisey of Nottingham's Guards
Tom A Dale was Allan A Dale 's brother, a liar and a thief. He was found by Robin of Locksley and the gang while in Sherwood Forest. After joining the gang at their camp, he and his friends prove to be a menace, stealing many of the gang's possessions. After Allan promises to Robin that he will keep Tom in line, Tom steals Robin's tags, the sign of membership in his gang, and the horses and leaves the camp. Tom and his friends then try to rob Lucky George, claiming to be Robin Hood's men, but a squad of nearby guards capture them. Robin promises Allan that he will rescue Tom and his friends, and a plan is devised. The next day, when the execution is set, the gang take their places. Unfortunately, the Sheriff reveals that he hanged them an hour early and uncovers their corpses hanging from the castle walls.
