GRENADIER GUARDS SANDBAG ACTION CASUALTY
Single: Crimea 1854-56, 4 clasps, "Alma, Balaklava, Inkermann, and Sebastopol" correctly impressed to G. Alcock, Grenadier Gds.
3420 Private George Alcock ('Allcock' in the published roll), 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards was severely wounded at the battle of Inkermann, 5 November 1854. On a later roll he is listed as ‘Dead W.O. 29.4.56'. As Private Alcock was classed as "Severely wounded" one can only guess that his death was a result of his wounding.
The Russian force of no less than 7,000 men attacked the Sandbag Battery bravely defended by 2,000 men. A rare casualty medal to such a significant action.
Slight contact marks and edge bruising, VF SOLD
