Yes she can, I must look up "whins" and find out what sort of vegetation they are. Just wiki'ed whin and it's a type of furze/gorse, and it's also a type of igneous basalt rock.

England and Scotland in the 18th and 20th centuries.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
