>> that WAS the yew wood that was used and with deadly affect by the largely Welsh archers.

Can I ask you to prove that statement, please? There are no surviving examples of ye olde yew bow and the tax of imported yew staves does point to foreign yew being used in very large quantities.

British yew may well have been used but it seems it was not necessarily the preferred wood.
