Scottish Targe from the Battle of Culloden

This Scottish Targe is really a piece of history! 1745/46 during the Jacobite uprising, a William Lindsay who was a shieldwright in Perth, Scotland, made hundreds of targes for the army of Charles Edward Stuart. He made a distinction in price between an officer's targe and an ordinary targe. Most likely, the original of this replica was made by him too, because it was "captured" at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and taken south to London with the Jacobite prisoners. It is now in the Museum of the Royal Armouries in The Tower of London. More information...
