It is from Shakespear's play ' King Henry (V) '[ the fifth]. It is an inspirational statement to all Englishmen who fought with him (King Henry ) at the Battle of Agincourt.

Even today it is still an inspirational acclamation.

To 'Cry God for Harry, England and St. George.

To 'Cry' does not mean 'boo' hoo' , but a shout of acclamation; a cheer.

'God' is the Christian God. People were much more religious , when this battle was fought, and it means that that God is on the Englishman's side, and will protect Englishmen.

'Harry' is a nickname for the name 'Henry' ( King Henry (V)). It is still used today , as Prince Harry ( he is formally Prince Henry).

'England' that nation they are all from and wish to fight for, and protect.

'St. George' is the patron saint of England, he slew the dragon. His flag is a white flag, with a red perpendicular cross and still refers to as the flag of England. He is like a national mascot.

Be you an Englishman or not, hope that helps with your understanding!!!!!
