Redders said he was going to take some photos after the main event but I only ever saw him with a pint glass in his hand. Perhaps it was one of those hidden cameras?

I'll have some pictures soon(ish) from both days. Can't guarantee quality, as I left the camera in others' hands!

Nice Pics, real life was better as Saturday was lovely during the event, how did you arrange for the rain to hit after everyone was in the pub bar?
One point rised on Buck's board was that no one knew it was happening, apart from me, and I only knew about it through Vic, Gary and this site, Would a bit more advertising in say local papers and maybe get a slot on the local radio for next year?

Thanks for sharing the pictures! You look great, yer Majesty!
And the Jacobite Poser of the Year, Corporal Paul, managed to sneak into yet another photo. :D

The picture of the massed Jacobites look great.
I'm crossing my fingers in hope of coming to the Derby event next year.

Cheers,
Henrik

Thanks Henrik - would be a pleasure to see you there next year.

And James, we are well aware that more advertising is needed. It is in hand. Thanks for all your comments about the event, they have been noted. Glad you enjoyed it.

I thought that was you shading your eyes from someone walking past in a new exceedingly bright, red and black tartan coat... not the sun!!!! :lol:

Great pics Arran. I'm even more annoyed now that I missed the event..... will be doing my damnedest to be there next year

Hmmm didn't think I'd mentioned the new coat. Thought I'd wear my French officers coat for the day, the blue stands out so well ona nice sunny day.

Arran, I agree, great pics.

Looking forward to seeing the complete portfolio.

Again, apologies my camera didn't get used to add to the pictoral archives.
I'll endevour to be less remisss at future events.

BTW - I thought the highland charge, inducing mass surrender, was most excellent! Would be good to see a full charge over a greater distance sometime. Tho a few of the Tartan clan may need to get a little fitter first :wink:
Still, would be an impressive sight i feel?

That made me laugh.

Reminds me of the hilarity of watching the Ranoch charge at Newbury in '93, and seeing vaste swathes of them fall by the wayside as they ran out of puff :D

The charge at Pots'n'pans in 1995 - now that was a sight to see (and quite the distance too)

So is Saturday still fought in the pub garden?

If so, how do folk run out of puff crossing that?

No one ran ourt of puff, you've to take into consideration you've are being mislead by on of the blokes in red.
What I thought was rather good was Ensign Elliot trying to lead the 47th into the river. Serious running away.

Serious running away?

Serios misscalculation I think you'll find.

He should have chosen the Marines, not the 47th.

Bloody ensigns.

All flag and no brain...!

In my defence, I wasn't attempting to mislead.
More a case of Andy failing by Misread (ing)!
(Did u see what i did there? :D )

Re read and you will understand that I was 'Complementing' the mini Highland charge in the beer garden.
Stating that over a greater distance it would be a truly awesome sight.
Showing concern that not all the Jacobites may be up to that charge if at a larger venue.

Granted, misinformation is a well known tactic of the day, which the Jacobite army is famous for falling fowl of. On this ocasion however, my commentary and words were of a complimentary nature.

Should I go back to be being troublesome and therefore more easily understood?

On the topic of Ensigns showing bad geographical tactical manouvering!
NO COMMENT, Just glad i'm in the glorious 13th :D :D
Also, hopefully the 47th will be taking swimming lessons to effect a full retreat from the field?

Ensign Elliot is one of yours :roll: and I'll think you'll find it was you lot who were mislead, chasing yourselves around the north of Britain.

I couldn't help but notice: Corp Ken is wearing one tartan over his shoulder and another as the kilted part. Is he wearing a philabeg?

Tod, since you complain about your looks not being given the credit you deserve: Have you seen the pictures on flickr.com from the event at Birdoswald? I think there are more pictures of you than Corp Paul there :P http://flickr.com/search/?q=jacobite+redcoat+birdoswald

I would think Corp. Ken was wearing a philabeg. I tend not to check his kit, for good reason, 'cause he's b****y good.

Checked the pics I hadn't seen them before. Very "active" but I still managed to have my bonnet covering half my face. Good shots of the straglers of John Roy's'.

Nice find Henrik. I've been looking for those pics for ages lol.

Some rather good shots there too.
For a small event, it came off rather well I thought?

I found the pictures after a quick search for "jacobite", hoping I might stumble over some reenactment pictures or something from museums. You never know what you'll find!
It looks like it was a an enjoyable event. Looks great with the Jacobite stragglers walking off with precious loot...

Henrik

I think you'll find we were running :o we were meant to be part of a rear guard from the retreat from Carlisle. The script worked out really well and the siter was good with lots of hollows for us to hide in, whilst the foolish Redcoats formed them selves up so we could pick them off one at a time. We only lost because they surrounded us and out gunned us, and would you believe they murdered me after I surrendered :roll:

Gerry and Mark tried to protect me (as they know they might need feeding in the future) but it was those donkey boys that did it. Their time will come, well it would if they didn't run off at every opertunity.

To hinder your plot for revenge, they have no planned events to runaway from!

Had you not shot me in the leg, I would have protected you also.......................................... Honest!

I would.
