CHARGE OF THE HEAVY BRIGADE
Pair : Crimea Medal three clasps "Balaklava, Inkermann, Sebastopol" and Turkish Crimea (Sardinian issue). Crimea medal impressed F. GRAY. 2ND DRAGNS. Sardinian Crimea depot impressed in upright capitals F. GRAY 2ND DRAGOONS.
Confirmed on roll and records show that at no stage was Private Francis Gray sick during the Crimean war. His service being stated as 1 year and eleven months in the Crimea. Roy Duttons book "Forgotten Heroes" has 1099 Pte. Gray as "probably rode in the charge". Great group to Gray of the Grey's.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The book "Charge of the Heavy Brigade" by Roy Dutton on page 359 reproduces an article by "the Aberdeen weekly" October the 27th 1896 which reports on the Scots Greys annual reunion in which Troopers W. Swanson, Gray and Berland are guests of honour being original chargers. This clearly illustrates that Gray being the only trooper on the nominal roll can now be classed as a "confirmed charger".
