Pictured: Major General John Douglas.
The medals of a fearless army officer who took on the entire Russian army during the doomed Charge of the Light Brigade have emerged for sale for £20,000.
Major General John Douglas led his men as they galloped towards the enemy at the Battle of Balaclava on October 25, 1854.
As they advanced into the 'Valley of Death' Russian guns fired from left and straight ahead, scything down the men and horses.
Those still standing were implored by Maj Gen Douglas to 'give it another charge' with their swords waving above their heads.
