Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815

Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815. The attack by the Royal Scots Greys cavalry regiment on the French 45th infantry was immortalised in this famous painting of 1881 by Lady Elizabeth Butler (1846-1933). The wife of a general as well as a popular Victorian painter, she persuaded the commander of the regiment to reconstruct the charge so she could make the painting. Some military historians doubt that the action actually took the form of the spectacular headlong charge depicted in the picture. What is known however is that the Scots Greys overpursued the French infantry, became split into disorganised small groups, and suffered heavy casualties at the hands of French cavalry formations before they were able to regain the British lines

The 'Tartar Soldier', in Hyde Park, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The "Tartar Soldier", in Hyde Park, 1844. Creator: Unknown

The "Tartar Soldier", in Hyde Park, 1844. Display of horsemanship and military exercises by ...a very curious individual, a Tartar soldier, formerly in a Mahomedan regiment of cavalry in the Russian service, who, it was understood, would exhibit himself and his horse in front of the Horse Guards barracks [in London]. The Tartar made his appearance accompanied by several gentlemen on horseback; one of whom appeared to act as his interpreter...His arms consisted of a pair of pistols, which, in the course of his performances, he repeatedly discharged, and a pole about ten or a dozen feet long, which he used as a lance, throwing it with considerable force when galloping, and with correct aim...He also threw himself off his horse - whilst at the top of his speed, and vaulted again into the saddle with great ease'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

The Conquest of the Soudan, 1896-98:...the Battle of Omdurman, September 2, 1898, (1901)

The Conquest of the Soudan, 1896-98: The Charge of the 21st Lancers at the Battle of Omdurman, September 2, 1898, (1901). British soldier Major-General Kitchener regained the Sudan for Egypt by his victory at Omdurman near Khartoum. The 21st Lancers, a light cavalry regiment, attacked what they thought were only a few hundred dervishes (Mahdist fighters), but there were 2000 infantry hidden behind them in a dry watercourse. 70 men were killed or wounded, with the loss of 119 horses, the highest casualty figures of any British regiment at the battle. Three Victoria Crosses were awarded to members of the 21st who had helped rescue wounded comrades. From "The Illustrated London News Record of the Glorious Reign of Queen Victoria 1837-1901: The Life and Accession of King Edward VII. and the Life of Queen Alexandra". [London, 1901]
