Lord Clyde Parade

SHARE

About 200 people enjoyed a parade on Sunday to remember Field Marshall Colin Campbell, 1st Baron Clyde, at the second Lord Clyde Parade.

Rory Butler of Letts Gully led the Clyde Dragoons wearing scarlet jackets on a march through the town, with Alex Joyce of Alexandra on bagpipes.

Historic Clyde Inc member and parade convener John Cockroft said Upper Dunstan became Clyde in 1865, named after Lord Clyde, who was made a peer of the realm by Queen Victoria.

Lord Clyde commanded the Black Watch at the battle of Alma during the Crimean war, and took part in the Chinese Opium Wars.
