LIVES OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE
The E.J. Boys Archive


Paul Anthony 11th Hussars

Name index — A

This list aims to show all members of the five regiments of the Light Cavalry brigade known to have embarked for active service in the Crimean War between 1854 and 1856 — more than 3000 men. Of these, between 600 and 700 were in the Charge on 25th October 1854.

Men who arrived in the East in 1854 or before the fall of Sebastopol on 9th September 1855 are listed in the main table. All such men, whether or not they set foot on the Crimea, were entitled to the Crimean War Medal [if they were on active service?]. The main list also includes men who died en route (or were invalided home) before reaching the East, who were not entitled to the medal. Those arriving in the East after the fall of Sebastopol on 9 September 1855, who were therefore not entitled to the Crimean War Medal, are listed separately below the main list. [In a few cases, there may be grounds for thinking men in the "lates" list should be included in the main list.]
