Post script to soldier's letter from the Crimean War. British Army Nov 3 1854 postmark (charge took place Oct 25, 1854).

PS states:
"PS - I regret to state that an insane order came out from some desiring our light cavalry to charge some Russian batteries (near Balaclava) unsupported. of 700 that went out 190 only returned. Some blame Capt. Nolen. Commander of Cavalry. He was the first killed. They may blame him. The dead cannot speak"
