This targe is based on an original, which was "captured" at the BATTLE OF CULLODEN in 1746, and taken south to London with the Jacobite prisoners. It has a removeable central spike. The Targe is made of hand dyed natural leather. It is now in the Museum of the Royal Armouries in The Tower of London.
