CHARGE OF THE BRITISH TROOPS ON THE ROAD TO WINDLESHAM. 1854
The Times of August 5th, 1853 reported: "In Catlin's Valley, Lord Seaton proceeded to fight a grand sham battle. While the retreating squadrons sought more and more the cover of their guns, the contest for the possession of the redoubt grew every moment more severe, and then, with loud hurrahs which made the valley ring, the whole line advanced by brigade, to the charge, which was executed with splendid effect. . . One of these charges in which the whole, brigade joined, the blues and the Scots Greys in the centre, and the Hussars and Light Dragoons on either side, was the finest thing of the kind we have ever witnessed, and electrified every onlooker by its brilliancy."
