Big Picture - Crimea

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.
