CHARGE OF THE HEAVY BRIGADE
Single: Crimea 1854-56, 3 clasps, Balaklava, Inkermann, Sebastopol (J. Canning. 2nd Dragns.)
James Canning was born in October 1827 and enlisted into the 2nd Dragoons at Edinburgh on 13 April 1846, for an unlimited period of engagement. He embarked with the regiment during April-June 1854 for service in the Crimea. The muster rolls confirm that Canning was on active duty with his regiment for the whole of the quarter of the 1st October to the 31st December 1854, and it is most probable, therefore, that he took part in the famous charge of the Heavy Brigade at Balaklava, in which the Scots Greys had two men killed and fifty-six wounded. Seven men were awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. Canning returned from the Crimea during the latter part of 1855, subsequently purchasing his discharge from the army in September 1856.
