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:-


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.)."

I hope this helps you forward!
