Marmion, engraved by James Heath after Richard Westall (1809)

From: Sir Walter Scott, Marmion: Illustrated with Engravings from the Designs of Richard Westall. London: John Sharpe, 1809 (facing p. 366)

The scene illustrates canto VI, stanza XXXII, lines 28-29 of Marmion:

'Charge, Chester, charge! On, Stanley, on!
Were the last words of Marmion.'

It depicts the dying Marmion at Flodden Field, attended by Clara de Clare and a monk.
