Extra Information about Saturday 10 August 1963
This was Blackman‘s Saturday in Derry when the Apprentice Boys (one of the loyal orders) commemorate the event when
one of the apprentices in Derry shut the gates of the city against the advancing army of King James. As an order, the
Apprentice Boys have black sashes rather than the orange or purple of the other orders, hence the nickname.
It was always a big day on all lines into Derry.
