On 25 October 1854 in Balaclava, the Battle of Balaclava took place. Lord Lucan gave the order to Lord Cardigan to advance a light cavalry brigade upon a retreating group of Russian gunmen. However, miscommunication caused the brigade to instead gallop towards a different group who were sure to slaughter them all. At 11:10, the Light Brigade charged towards certain death. (AUDIO: The Angel of Scutari) This became known as the Charge of the Light Brigade. The Doctor witnessed the event, which he remembered as a "magnificent folly". (TV: The Evil of the Daleks, The Sea Devils)
