The Charge of the Light Brigade 1854

#onthisday 1854 The Light Brigade charged Russian positions at the Battle of Balaclava in the Crimean War. Of the 674 men 114 were Irish. 21 Irishmen died, 16 were wounded & 7 were taken prisoner. More than 30,000 Irishmen served in the Crimea.
PS: I know this is the painting of the Scots Greys not the Light Brigade but I like it.
