NOTES ON ENDPAPERS

Charge of the Light Brigade

The Charge of the Light Brigade, showing (red) the direction of the British attack led by Lord Cardigan through the North Valley. The Russians (green) have seized the Fedukine Hills to the north and most of the Woronzov Causeway to the south, where the Redoubts (fortified strongpoints) are marked. Captain Nolan is shown veering towards the south, Lord Lucan less sharply. (From A.W. Kinglake, The Invasion of the Crimea,1863-87)


Fanny Duberly's sketchmap of the Disposition of the armies
before Sebastopol

'I sent you a map of the situation of batteries and the position of the forces' (Fanny to Selina, 20 November 1854); she also sent 'a more splendiferous one' to the Queen. Sebastopol is shown with the Round Tower and the Redan, the battlefield of Inkerman on the right. However Fanny's map, which was drawn from her own observations after riding over the ground, is slightly misleading. She places the Sapoune Heights, from where Lord Raglan directed the battle of Balaclava, and the Causeway Heights, with the adjacent north and south valleys, to the east of Balaclava. In addition she draws the two valleys running diagonally from the north-west to the south east. On the ground the Sapoune Heights and Chersonese Uplands are slightly to the west of Balaclava and the valleys with the Causeway Heights between them run from west to east.

The spot where Henry and Fanny watched the two cavalry charges is marked on the map with a cross next to 'Batteries'. From this, and her description of events during the day, it would seem that she was not standing near Raglan and his staff but some distance away, possibly near the uncompleted, unmanned 6th redoubt which was on the western end of the Causeway Heights. On her map, the charge of the Heavy Brigade is marked to the south-west of her vantage point and the position of the Light Brigade, just before their charge, is shown directly north-east from where Henry and she watched.
