Five minutes before the Light Brigade charged at
Balaclava, Colonel Shewell of the Royal Irish Hussars spotted three troopers enjoying a last pipe of tobacco. 'Bad form,' he thought, and stripped them of their weapons, sending them into the charge unarmed. One survived, only to be flogged the next morning. Major Willie Peto tells the story of the most famous charge in history, and the Scots Greys recover the gold imperial eagle which they snatched from Napoleon at Waterloo.
