Charge Of The Light Brigade: the light brigade was sent on a full frontal assault against an artillery battery, which was well prepared and with excellent fields of defensive fire. Although the Light Brigade reached the battery under heavy direct fire, the badly mauled brigade was forced to retreat immediately. Thus, the assault ended with very high British casualties and no definitive gains. The events are best remembered as the subject of the poignant poem “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Good Condition. This Charge Of The Light Brigade Print is in good condition the marks that are shown in the images are due to the fact that the image is behind glass and is unfortunately subject to reflections.

NB: A full copy of Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem “Charge of the Light Brigade” is attached to the back of the picture.

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
“Forward, the Light Brigade!
“Charge for the guns!” he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

“Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Someone had blunder’d:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
