This Sunday Wing Commander Derek Read will lead a tour of the battlefield of the 1650 Battle of Dunbar. Dunbar was a crushing defeat for the Scots under David Leslie by Cromwell and his New Model Army. It was another battle where a Scottish commander outnumbered the English, had a better position on the battlefield, and still managed to lose. (See Homildon Hill, Verneuil, Flodden etc.)
Anyway this article isn't about the battle, it is about this Sunday's tour.
It is being organised by the Battlefields Trust and Geoffrey Carter is the man to contact for further information if you need it.
