The Charge of the Light Brigade: Raglan again

Page 1 of 4

Raglan's response to Lucan's account (and particularly to Lucan's version of Raglan's order) runs to 11 pages. This extract refers to a previous order to Lucan '…which did not seem to me to have been attended to,…' concerning the Russian positions. Raglan goes on to criticise Lucan for, having ordered the attack, then failing to reduce the risks to his men by using either the horse artillery or French cavalry in support.

Catalogue reference: WO 1/370 ff.483-6 (16 Dec 1854)
