“Writer, historian and Russianist” Helen Rappaport's very smart site – the Crimean War content is mostly about Mary Seacole. (Helen is the author of No Place for Ladies, the Untold Story of Women in the Crimean War.)
“So much misinformation about Seacole is now available in print, on websites (including those of highly reputable organizations) and in the social media that a source using reliable, carefully documented, material is badly needed.” This is it.
Useful list from Michael Hargreave Mawson: “This list attempts to record every instance of publication (private or commercial), in the second half of the 20th Century, of letters or diaries from the Crimean War.”
Blog about Richard Ramsay Armstrong to go with the book. Richard Ramsay Armstrong was a young naval officer in the Crimean War who skippered a tug in Balaklava harbour and then was wounded 5 times during service with the Naval Brigade and in the Sea of Azov. Intended as a kind of online 'reader'. By the CWRS webmaster Tom Muir.
Jeremy Archer's maternal great-grandfather was Major-General William Allan, who served throughout the Crimean War with the 41st Regiment. This is Jeremy's transcription of the general's book, My Early Soldiering Days. It appears as part of Jeremy's excellent family history website at www.archerfamily.org.uk.
Quoted from the intro to the site: Irregular Correspondence is a collection of 192 letters, mainly written in the ten years from 1855 by the three eldest sons of John and Eliza Laurie, to their parents. The letters have been transcribed and reassembled, primarily for the benefit of interested family members. The earliest surviving letter was written by the youngest of the three brothers, Julius, about to embark from Liverpool, initially destined for Malta. He was a 15 year old Ensign and very excited at the prospect of action in the Crimea where he also hoped to join his two elder brothers John, 19, a Lieutenant in 4th Regiment of Foot and Peter, 17, a civilian on board a merchant vessel.
