"The same afternoon Sarah and I drove to Sebastopol...

I was anxious to see the field of Balaclava. On the afternoon of February 13 I visited the scene, accompanied by the Chiefs of Staff and the Russian admiral commanding the Black Sea Fleet. As the scene lay before us one could grasp the situation which Lord Raglan had faced some ninety years earlier. We had visited his tomb in the morning, and were greatly struck by the care and respect with which it had been treated by the Russians."
