George Loy Smith was a TSM in the 11th Hussars. He wrote a book entitled ' A Victorian RSM'.
His reports of various episodes of the Charge are used quite extensively in the book 'The Charge' by Mark Adkin. This is a refreshing book which offers a plausible alternative explanation for the monumental blunder.
I'm interested in GL Smith because he may possibly be an ancestor of mine too.
