Crimea Appeal
Crimea Appeal
Nearly 23,000 British soldiers and sailors died in the Crimean War of 1854-6, among them some of the greatest heroes in our history. In the environs of Sevastopol, Ukraine, lie the remains of men who fought at the Alma, stood in the Thin Red Line, charged with the Light Brigade, and suffered the full horror of trench warfare sixty years before the First World War.
They have no enduring memorial. The present construction is derelict, and while our Embassy at Kyiv is fighting to create another round the obelisk at nearby Dergachi, they are wholly dependent on public donations to complete this work.
Please help us to help them do it.
Visit the Appeal's site at to find out more, donate, and (if you are a UK taxpayer) fill out a Gift Aid form.
