In detail: Charge of the Light Brigade
Infamous anniversary

One of the British Army's most infamous engagements took place 150 years ago.

On 25 October 1854, during the Crimean War, a misunderstood order sent 600 cavalrymen thundering into heavy Russian gunfire.

The National Army Museum in London is marking the anniversary with a special exhibition.
