The battle of Prestonpans took place on the 21st September 1745 and was between the Highland army of Prince Charles Edward Stuart and Royal Troops of George II. It was won by the Jacobites. The soldier has a bayonet on his left hip and a canvas haversack on his back. He has a flintlock in his right hand.
