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


Paul Anthony 11th Hussars

— PUBLIC LISTING —

Name index — C

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 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.

NB For the moment, only the records for the 13th Light Dragoons are fully accessible to read online. If you are interested in a man from one of the other regiments, please contact the editors.
