" The Dark Day" and "The Wet Parade"
- Hi All,
First of all, thanks Jimmie for your confirmation about the Road man.
Secondly, my father told me that amongst his relatives (all
Dundonians) events were dated in relation to the day the bridge
camedoon, the dark day (when the lamps had to be lit at noon) and the
wet parade (when the Angus militia got so wet that many of them
subsequently died of pneumonia). The first event is well known but
can anyone shed any light on the other two?
