Artist: Eric Parker (biography)

This is the original Watercolour painting by Eric Parker.

A sword, shield, dirk, pistol and helmet symbolise the Battle of Culloden in this spot-illustration from the Ranger Annual 1967.

The Battle of Culloden was the final confrontation of the 1745 Jacobite Rising. On 16 April 1746, the Jacobite forces of Charles Edward Stuart fought loyalist troops commanded by William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands.

The Hanoverian victory at Culloden decisively halted the Jacobite intent to overthrow the House of Hanover and restore the House of Stuart to the British throne; Charles Stuart never mounted any further attempts to challenge Hanoverian power in Great Britain.

The conflict was the last pitched battle fought on British soil.
