Found this one today in North Devon UK. I havent done any research on this but I would have thought it strange to have a monument this size for a Lieuitenant in the Crimea?





edit. The 17th lancers were the regiment of the Charge of the Light Brigade. The date of Thomson's death is on that date. The monument was erected by his brother.
