"Walking the ground" is prominent in this issue as Dr. David Jones and Jeff Bennett try to pinpoint the  elusive location of Lord Raglan's knoll at the battle of the Alma; Dr. Douglas Austin and Tom Muir provide us with follow up articles about the "last survivor" of the Crimean War and the fate of Second Master James Dennehy; Major Frank Clark departs ham his usual regimental histories to share a biography on Mrs. Elizabeth Evans, while Mike Hinton enlightens us on the rarity of the death penalty in the Crimea and the circumstances of some of the capital cases; Oliver Dashwood shares the transcription of some rare letters, Mike Shakespeare shares a letter to The Times from 1868, and Mark Conrad does his usual excellent job handling a translation and transcription, with helpful explanatory notes. Major-General P. G. Williams shares a brief tale of serendipity with a tale of some drums captured at Inkerman, while Major Colin Robins looks at some common, and not so common nicknames used during the war. Mark Davidson shares a book review of Douglas Hill's compilation of the letters of Assistant-Surgeon David Greig who served at Scutari. as well as contributing a photo of a home believed to have been the home of Captain William Morris of the 17th Lancers. Chairman Peter Knox shares a report on a visit to Bulgaria and a future tour centering on Turkey and the Crimean War. Colin Robins returns to share the sad new of the passing of Major Bill Billett, David Cliff and I have our usual columns, and we finish off with miscellanea about Admiral Buckle, William Hall the first black winner of the Victoria Cross, and some musings on Colonel Ripley (U.S.) and the Enfield Rifle.
