The classic (but not error-free) book "Honour the Light Brigade" by Canon W.M. Lummis, edited by K.G.Wynn was published by Hayward and Son, London, in 1973.
My copy has ISBN 0 903754 03.7.
It remains a very special resource for Charge fans,
On page 200, I can see the following:-
"1106 SMITH (TROOP SERGEANT-MAJOR GEORGE)
Enlisted : c. December 1842.
Troop Sergeant-Major : 16th October 1854.
Wounded and taken prisoner in the Charge : 25th October 1854.
To Depot from Scutari: 15th December 1855.
Medal : Crimea (B.S.)."
