We begin our issue with some rare photographs of John Parkinson, llth Hussars, kindly supplied by Terry Purchase at the solicitation of Bert Gedin. Tony Margrave then provides an excellent overview of the operations of the French Navy in the Black Sea. Major Frank Clark then contributes a short but sweet summary of the activities of the 13th Foot in our war. Bridget Ann Henisch provides a very interesting article about the lost photographs of the Crimean War, while James Mackie provides a photo enriched article about Lewes and the Crimean War. Chris Poole regales us with a biography of the colourful 'Blood Smith' of the 17th Lancers fame. Major Colin Robins again joins in a collaboration with Yuri and Elena Kulikov in an article about the Sevastopol Docks and the man who built them, and in a solo effort provides an excellent book review of an excellent book: Crimean Memories: Artefacts of the Crimean War. Captain Robert Bonner then provides us with a double biography with his article on the Clutterbuck brothers. two officers who served with the 63rd  Regiment in the Crimea, one of whom died in the Crimea while his brother survived. only to pass away in Milan in 1867. The last of our articles, by Karl Showler, tells the sad story of a Major Charles Henn Lumley, who survived the Crimea and won the Victoria Cross, only to take his own life. Supplementary materials in this issue include transcriptions concerning two Light Brigade survivors, one Heavy Brigade survivor, and two members of the Royal Navy presented in three separate features courtesy of Ian and Helen Smith. Dr. Douglas J. Austin shares a photo and a bit of trivia about a Crimean souvenir he acquired. James Mackie returns with a brief bit about the plaque to Major General Sir John Campbell in Winchester Cathedral, and our Chairman Colonel Peter Knox shares a photo of the all but hidden Smyth monument in Cape Town. I share a brief piece on an assault on Queen Victoria in 1850, and add a photo essay with pictures showing her at various stages in her life. The issue concludes when Dave Cliff and I add our usual columns, and Jeff Bennett and Bob Glover polish off the issue with their usual visually stunning cover art.
