Marching bands flood the streets of Derry to commemorate the Battle of the Boyne. Despite the silence this colourful film captures the spectacle of the Orange Lodges on parade.
The imposing walls of Derry city provide a suitably grand backdrop as a uniformed fife and drum bands parade in tightly-drilled formations. Each year, hundreds of Orange Institution parades take place throughout Northern Ireland. The biggest of these take place on 'The Twelfth'. These annual 12th of July Orange Order parades are to mark the victory of the Protestant king, William of Orange, over the Catholic king, James II, at the Battle of the Boyne, in 1690.
