15. In Ruthwell village, Dumfriesshire, William Gillespie, an old Chelsea pensioner. By his own account he was 108 years of age, having been born in the year 1710. His discharge, however, which is dated in 1763, and characterises him as being then "worn out" in the service, makes him a few years younger, but still upwards of 100. He was a native of Ireland, which place he left when very young, and having enlisted in the Inniskilling dragoons, he served in the German wars under Lord Stair, in the years 1743-4. On the breaking out of the Rebellion, his regiment was recalled, and at the fatal battle of Prestonpans, he gallantly saved from falling into the hands of the enemy, a stand of colours which had been abandoned on the field. The colours were lying by the side of an ensign who had just breathed his last. Gillespie took them up, and seeing the celebrated Colonel Gardiner, who had then received his death-wound, reelining on a bank at a little distance, he went up to him, and asked his commands :-" Save yourself," was all that the good man could say; on which Gillespie instantly mounted his horse, and, through a shower of balls, from a party of rebels who were in possession of the public road, reached a place of safety with his prize. The old man delighted to recount this incident, and, as he talked of the dangers of the field, the fire of youth again glanced in his eye. He was naturally of a robust make, but for several years past, the hand of age had bent his form, and forced him to support his steps with a staff. He continued, however, to walk about the neighbourhood till within a few days of his death.
