Tom Barry's flying column of 104 men out maneovered a British encirclement operation of 1400 at Crossbarry. Lightly armed, they took out far more men than they lost and they broke their way through to the mountains...

--How about the Battle of Watling Street? A Roman force primarily composed of the 5000-odd men of the XIVth Legion commanded by Suetonius Paulinus, versus the British Hordes led by Boudicca--estimated as high as 120000 men. End result was Britannia was a nice peaceful Roman province for the next several hundred years.
