Re: BATTLE OF PRESTONPANS 2010

Participant regiments are detailed in the warning orders. We're expecting a good turnout from a number of groups, which should result in an successful event. The week's two warm-up events, at Duddingston and Dunbar, have both been very effective at getting everyone in the mood at this end... To arms...

The Charles Edward Stuart Society is proud to host once again its annual commemorative weekend, recalling the entry of the Jacobite army into Derby in 1745. For those who have attended previously, the script remains largely the same as in previous years. Regrettably, as was the case last year, there...

Thanks all who attended....

Yes, there was a wee bit of marching involved, but over all I thought it came off really rather well. I had a superb few days and socially the event was excellent.

Bravo all, hope to see you at Derby; info to follow very soon indeed.

Thanks to all those who took part and/or came to watch. It is quite unbelievable how we manage to sort the weather out each year!

Swarkestone was excellent this year, and I look forward to the return of the Sunday battle for 2008 - but it was a fine showing all round.

"The windows were full of Ladys who threw up their handkerchiefs and clap'd their hands and show'd great loyalty to the Bonny Prince." Magdalen (Madie) Pringle is the first recorded usage of the name, in her letters describing what was happening in Edinburgh. So it is contemporary, but who...

Actually, some years back - before I was promoted to HRH or worked the cannon, so going back about 7 years - I used to carry the Saint George Cross in the Jacobite army during the Derby weekend, in a basic militia uniform. We stopped when I was older and needed elsewhere. We need more youngsters. Ne...

Yes, you're right about the aesthetics. They want BPC to be pointing down the green and over the new bridge. We did mention the whole north/south symbolism, but to little avail. I think they thought I was mad. As for wreaths, we are hopefully going to lay them in the Cathedral, where there is a larg...

Yup, they're digging up the Green and putting in a footbridge over the river there, new paths etc. They are also planning to turn the BPC statue around to face the river (frustratingly). The Green is boarded up while work takes place, so there is no access to the statue or the grass. It is a shame f...

Yes, the Czechs were a fine bunch with a lot to offer.

I agree with Neil that the event was similar to Derby, and that is understandable since Derby was in many ways the inspiration after the organisers visited last December. Hopefully the Pans event will be developed further over the years.

As for Prestonpans Neil - 4am marching a thing to be done for the experience.... once! Not easy to lead a column in the dark through rough territory!

And I agree, it was good to be piped into the palace. Happy to enjoy my own again!
