With all respect, it was never the task of a herald to engage in
espionage. The notion is interesting, but not consistent with chivalric
practice at that time, however barbaric wars were then, and now.

Re my previous posting, it would be more likely that there were spies in
or around Henry's camp to report directly back to the French, notably
with the lines so close. In the famous scene in the Dauphin's tent on
the night of the battle, I recall there was mention made of a gentleman
measuring the distance between the two camps, no espionage involved.
Which is not to say -- and well within the practice of the day -- that
there were as noted spies in English dress within Henry's camp itself.
