Grenadier Guards in the Crimea

Officer, Guardsman, Drummer and Colour Sergeant, The Grenadier Guards. The 3rd Battalion, Grenadier Guards, formed part of the Guards Brigade of Lieutenant-General HRH The Duke of Cambridge's First Division, which arrived on the Plain of Balaclava from the Sapoune Ridge after the Charge of the Light Brigade had ended.


  1. Even as a Yank I understand that Russia cannot quit the Crimean .. Too much blood spilled over too long a period of time to let international banker cartels have it with the Ukraine. History trully does repeat itself. Nice site thank you.

  2. Did any of the Guard regiments carry blanket rolls instead of packs during the Crimean War?
