Defeated Jacobites

Active selection:    
Defeated Jacobites.  30,000 troops followed their leader James II into exile after the defeat at Limerick in 1691.  As they left down the River Shannon, they saw wild geese returning to Ireland.  They too would be be like those geese, they thought; one day they would return.  The treaty under which they left was soon shamelessly broken, and, with their leaders gone, those Irishmen and women who remained behind were totally defenceless.  Original artwork for illustration on p8 of Look and Learn issue non 952 (19 April 1980).
