PB NOTE (7 August 2018): For the moment, only the records for men of the 13th Light Dragoons (and a few others) are fully accessible to read online - their surnames in the list below function as links.

Subsets of information — chiefly about the death, burial and memorialisation of men of the 11th Hussars — are currently being uploaded. These can be viewed by following the "DBM" links in the right hand column.

If you can add or correct information (or have additional photographs, documents etc), or you are interested in a man from one of the other regiments, please contact the editors of the EJBA, Philip Boys and Roy Mills.

This list aims to show all members of the five regiments of the Light Cavalry brigade (4th Light Dragoons, 8th Hussars, 11th Hussars, 13th Light Dragoons, 17th Lancers) who embarked for active service in the Crimean War between 1854 and 1856 — more than 3000 men. The exact number who rode in the Charge on 25th October 1854 is still a subject of debate, but probably fewer than 700.

Men who arrived after the fall of Sebastopol on 9 September 1855, who (with some exceptions) were therefore not entitled to the Crimean War Medal, are listed separately below. Men who died or were invalided home before reaching the Crimea are shown in the main list.
