Painting - Watercolour On Cold-pressed 300 Gsm Watercolour Paper
A Hussar from the charge of the light-brigade in the Crimean war.
Sword drawn, facing certain death, they charged the Russian front.
Each yard they rode forward being decimated by the massed guns of their enemy.
They breached the Russian lines only to find they were without support from friendly troops.
Retreating the same ground they had advanced more died joining the corpses of their comrades.
Few survived this suicidal charge for which no ground or advantage was gained.
