This scottish targe came down from my husband's family in Galloway and was supposedly carried by a forebear in the Battle of Culloden in 1746. It is a real, solid connection to Scottish/English history and particularly to the story of Bonnie Prince Charlie. There is a piece of plaid cloth attached to the back - presumably to keep it with the targe. It is circular, wood, covered with hide, hair still on it in places and studded with a central boss. The leather arm hold is still there but broken. It is 48cm in diameter.
