The story of Fletcher, our marque
DC Dalgliesh's marque honours Selkirk's lone banner-bearer, Fletcher, whose bravery is celebrated at the climax of the annual Common Riding, the highlight of our local calendar.
It commemorates 1513, when most of Selkirk's men fought and died at the battle of Flodden. Fletcher, a weaver, returned alone, carrying a captured English banner.
