CBC08 - Charge of the Light Brigade characters
CBC8 - Light Brigade characters: Capt Morris, 'Butcher Jack', Capt Nolan.
Captain William Morris was in the front rank during the Charge, and was one of the first horsemen to reach the Russian guns. Having taken command of the 17th Lancers only days before the charge, he was still wearing his forage cap.
Jack Vahey, regimental butcher of the 17th Lancers, spent the night before Balaclava under guard because of over-indulging in commissariat rum, but the next morning he took part in the Charge of the Light Brigade in his bloody overalls, wielding a butchers axe and riding a captured Russian officer's horse.
Captain Louis Nolan of the 15th Hussars was ADC to General Airey, and delivered the order that produced one of the most famous actions in all of military history.
Figures are 28mm sized, made of metal and supplied unpainted.
