Arthur Burnand

Arthur Burnand was born in June 1835.

He joined the 17th Lancers, as a Cornet, in September 1854, and was promoted Lieutenant in December of that year.

He arrived in the Crimea on the 14th August 1855, and qualified for the Crimea Medal with the single clasp “Sebastopol”.

He returned to England a few weeks later – the reason for his early return isn’t known.

He was promoted Captain in April 1857, and transferred to the 16th Light Dragoons in February 1858.

He retired (by sale) in October of that year.

He died on the 11th December 1911, at Hove, East Sussex, and is buried in the Burnand family plot in Hove Cemetery.

His estate was valued at over £33,000 – over £10,000,000 at today’s values, based on average earnings,

which means that he was a very wealthy man.

With Army List details and photocopied extract from Honour the Light Brigade,

which confirms the medal and clasp entitlement.

Without doubt worthy of further research.

IT SHOULD BE NOTED, THAT AS LIEUTENANT BURNAND

DID NOT ARRIVE IN THE CRIMEA UNTIL AUGUST 1855,

HE WAS NOT ONE OF THE 17TH LANCERS OFFICERS

WHO TOOK PART IN

THE CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE
