This weeks Big Picture is from May 2003. English Heritage
ran several themed events at our local site, Tilbury Fort
in Essex. These pictures are from the Crimea
Re-enactment event they ran to celebrate the life of Florence Nightingale
. This was James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan
and commander of the infamous Light Brigade.
There was also a very interesting (if gruesome) display of medical instruments available during this period.
