Battle of Jersey 2013 - The Death of Major Pierson

A dull day. Overcast with a soft mizzle that creates a chill. But in the Royal Square people gather to commemorate the Battle of Jersey and recreate the scene envisaged by the artist Copley's painting. The original is still on show at the Jersey Museum. The colour and noise attract a large crowd away from sale shopping.

The Jersey Pipe Band along with the Badlabecques provide a soundtrack.
