In life, Saunderson had been, at the end, an embarrassment and had been shunted politely but irrevocably to the sidelines of the loyalist command; but in death, his misdemeanours would be quietly shed, and a pristine figure would briefly join the Orange pantheon. For several years after 1906 Saunderson would be accepted by Unionist Ulster as a latter day George Walker, venerated in literature and in stone.
