Lieutenant-Colonel James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, 1854 (c).

Oil on millboard by Alfred Frank de Prades, 1854 (c).

Cardigan's most famous action took place during the Crimean War (1854-1856) when, during the Battle of Balaklava (25 October 1854), he misinterpreted an order and led the Light Brigade in the fateful charge down 'the valley of death', against Russian positions. He bravely galloped many yards in front of his men and was the first among the Russian guns. However, in the melée he turned back, giving no further orders and leaving his men among the enemy without direction.
