Interesting cartoon

Looking for stuff on balloons at the Siege of Sevastopol I found this cartoon which is typical of the shameful approach to the Ottomans in the Crimean War. Let's wish the reenactment project to give them due credit all the best. The caption reads

British Officer.
"iiallo, Jack! What Are You About Now?"

Jack. "wey, Yer Honour—Yoo See Riding's A Deal Pleasanter Than Walking About Here, And When This Chap's TIRED—I MOUNTS T'OTHER COVE ! "
