Jacobite Sword

Scottish basket hilted claymore sword left behind by retreating Jacobite forces in 1745. The claymore was the favoured weapon of Scottish highland clansmen. It was used in combination with the targe (spiked shield) and dirk (dagger) at close range in a tactic known as the highland charge.
