HISTORY74SPRING 2012WWW.NTS.ORG.UKThis remarkable photograph bears testimony toone of the lesser-known facts about the battleof Culloden. Taken in October 1963 at theunveiling of a memorial stone to the Irishtroops who fought at the battle, it features,from left, Lt-Colonel Patrick Hogan of the IrishArmy, Colonel Jock Maitland-Makgill-Crichtonof the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders,Colonel Nadaillac of the French Army, CorneliusCremin, Irish Ambassador to Britain andCommandant James Coyle of the Irish Army. The Irish Stone had been erected by theMilitary History Society of Ireland to thepicturesquely named 'Wild Geese' who foughtfor the Prince in the '45. Irish troops had beenin the service of France since the GloriousRevolution of 1688, being among the most die-hard of Jacobites. By 1745 the French had sixIrish regiments.There is some confusion as to how manyIrish troops joined the Prince's army, somehaving been captured en route by the RoyalNavy. It seems, though, that by Culloden theynumbered between 285 and 302. They werepositioned on the left flank of the Jacobitesecond line and provided an essential elementof regular infantry to balance the "one-shot"Highland charge tactic employed by the clans.The infantry, known as Irish Picquets, woreuniforms of the same red as that of their enemyacross Drumossie Moor.To the rear of the Jacobite army stood 70members of Fitzjames' Horse, an Irish cavalryregiment also in French service. Together theIrish troops did great service during the battle,covering the Jacobite retreat. The infantry'sbrevet commander, Brigadier Walter Stapleton,was mortally wounded. Being in the service of the French Crown andso not actual traitors to King George, thecaptured survivors fared better than theHighlanders and had prisoner-of-war status.The stone's inscription translates as: "Thebreed of Kings, sons of Mileadh, eager warriorsand heroes", Mileadh being the legendaryfounder of the Irish race.A service in Gaelic and English,commemorating all who died in the battle, willbe held at the site at 11am on 14 April. lFrom the archiveThe Irish Stone at Culloden, 1963By Iain GaleDiscoverCullodenCulloden Moor, Inverness, IV2 5EU Tel: 0844 493 2459 Site All year MTWTFSSVisitor Centre, Restaurant and Shop24 Jan to 31 Mar 10-4 MTWTFSS1 Apr to 31 Oct 9-6 (9-5 in Oct) MTWTFSS1 Nov to 23 Dec 10-4 MTWTFSSFor more information, seewww.tinyurl.com/ntscullodenShare yourTrust imagesDo you have a great image from a Trustproperty that you'd like to share?Upload your best pictures -fromCulloden or elsewhere -to our Flickrgroup and you could win a compactCoolpix S6300 camera from Nikon,worth £179.99.
