Lummis, William M. & Wynn, Kenneth G.


1st ed., 1973. 320 pp., + photo & other-plates. D.j., 25 x 15cm. V.G.+. This book records the individual services of some 2000 Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and Other Ranks of the five Light Cavalry regiments who served in the Crimea, 1854 to 1856. Details of their honours, awards and medals are given, together with much fascinating and important information on their lives. An important aspect of this work is that the men of the Light Brigade, who charged on the 25th October 1854, are clearly indicated. The hitherto ‘unknown’ men who charged can now take their rightful places within the archives of the Nation’s history. Illustrated with photographs, this is a valuable reference book.
