British Crimea Charge of the Light Brigade J Mcneil 4th Light Dragoons Medals. A ‘Light Brigade’ pair awarded to Private J. McNeil, 4th Light Dragoons, who was recorded as ‘present at the famous Battle of Balaclava, and was one of the “Six Hundred” who rode “into the jaws of death” on the terrible 25th of October. During the charge he was wounded by a Russian huzzar. Whilst attacked by two of them, and defending himself on one side, he received a sabre slash across the face, which divided his nose. He, however, succeeded in severing the bridle of one of his adversaries, which left his opponent entirely at his mercy. He was then wounded in the leg, and subsequently taken prisoner by the Russians’ Crimea 1854-56, 4 clasps, Alma, Balaklava, Inkermann, Sebastopol (J. McNeil. 4th Lt.
