Price: $58.00


John Jenkins Designs

The British army at Culloden was deployed in 2 main lines of 6 battalions each , with a third reserve line of 3 battalions. Standing on the extreme left of the first British line ,was the 4th Regiment of Foot (Barrell’s). The Highlanders on the right and centre pressed forward running across the front of the British line directly towards the 4th Regiment of Foot. Such an onslaught previously had sent the redcoats running to the rear in flight. Witnesses to the battle state that initially Barrell’s regiment stood their ground, but almost at once the rebels started to lap around the flanks, which caused the British regiment to fall back towards the second line battalions.

Out of 325 men, it was recorder that 17 were Killed and 108 wounded. Despite these heavy losses suffered by the British 4th Regiment, it was nothing in comparison with the terrible casualties which were inflicted upon the charging Highland clansmen.

2 figure set. Limited edition of 750 sets.
