  • Bonnie Prince Charlie parade, Derby, England - Photographs and History
    of Lord John Drummond at Montrose with 1 000 Irish and Scottish troops paid for by the French Further French support was promised On the evening of December 4th Bonnie Prince Charlie had every reason to be optimistic and an advance party secured Swarkestone Bridge on the main road to London On December 5th a local tax secured 3 000 for the Prince But during the day worrying news reached the Duke of Perth Captain Dudley Bradstreet who had just travelled to Derby said that the Duke of Cumberland s army was already at Lichfield with Richmond s army of 9 000 nearby and Ligonier s army was at Northampton This information altered the prospect of success for the Prince It now seemed that the Highlanders were outnumbered and their path to London was blocked At a council meeting in Exeter House the Prince s officers in particular the commander Lord George Murray strongly advised an immediate retreat They thought they would be more likely to succeed when the French support had joined them Charles did not agree and felt bitter and betrayed because he was forced to retreat by the lack of support from his staff His own words tell of his disappointment and disillusionment In future I shall summon no councils since I am accountable to nobody for my actions but to God and my father and therefore I shall no longer either ask or accept advice The decision to retreat was carried out swiftly Before dawn on December 6th under the cover of darkness the Highland army began to leave Derby By 11 00 am all were gone It was to prove the turning point for the rebellion and for Bonnie Prince Charlie s fortunes This set of photos shows the annual parade to mark this event This event is organised by Richard Felix see my Ghost page for info Richard has been organising this parade since 1990 It is acted out by the Charles Edward Stuart Society To find out when the event will be held this year Please visit the Derby messageboard by clicking HERE Photo Description The start of the parade on Wilmot Street Image Reference No DP 021201BONNIEPRIN 01 Date photo taken 2nd December 2001 Other Information This is the very start of the parade at around 12 20 on Wilmot street Photo Description Bonnie Prince Charlie parade on Osmaston Road Image Reference No DP 021201BONNIEPRIN 02 Date photo taken 2nd December 2001 Other Information The parade has marched left out of Wilmot street and is heading down Osmaston Road Photo Description Bonnie Prince Charlie parade at the Spot Image Reference No DP 021201BONNIEPRIN 03 Date photo taken 2nd December 2001 Other Information Here they have reached The Spot Photo Description Bonnie Prince Charlie himself Image Reference No DP 021201BONNIEPRIN 04 Date photo taken 2nd December 2001 Other Information This is Bonnie Prince Charlie on St Peters Street Photo Description Bonnie Prince Charlie parade on St Peters street Image Reference No DP 021201BONNIEPRIN
