Friday - Cavalcade to assemble at the Lower Ramparts at 10.00am. Platform to be erected in front of the Unionist Club; Provost would buss the Flag and charge the Callant with its safe-keeping. Cavalcade would then proceed out Jedwater road led by the Jethart Callant and supported by his Right and Left Hand Men, each being armed with a replica of the Jeddart Axe, to Ferniehurst Castle. Company to sing one verse each of 'Jethart's Here' and the 'Brave Lads of Jethart'.
