Another For Hector

Another For Hector

In the battle of Inverkeithing, between the Royalists and Oliver Cromwell, five hundred of the followers of the Laird of Maclean were left dead on the field. In the heat of the conflict, seven brothers of the clan sacrificed their lives in defence of their leader. Sir Hector Maclean. Being hard pressed by the enemy, he was supported and covered from their attacks by these intrepid men; and as one brother fell, another came up in succession to cover him, crying "Another for Hector!" This phrase has continued ever since as a proverb or watch-word when a man encounters any sudden danger that requires instant succour.
