Balaclava Day

Original Title: C Troop, Royal Horse Artillery
Present Title: C Battery, Royal Horse Artillery
Status: Active
Date: 1 November 1793
Website: http://www.army.mod.uk/artillery/regiments/24665.aspx
C Battery was formed on the 1st November 1793 and is the only Battery in the RHA to have kept its original letter since its formation. Its most notable achievement came during the Crimean War on 25th October 1854, C Troop had just returned from duty at Inkerman when they were called upon to provide further support to the Heavy Brigade at Balaclava. The Battery rode through the night over treacherous terrain to join the battle where they immediately came into action. Covering the withdrawal of the Heavy Brigade, C Troop fired 49 rounds which was sufficient to arrest the advance of the Russian Cavalry, forcing them to turn and flee. Without the support of C Troop RHA the outcome of the ‘Charge of the Heavy Brigade’ would have been as disastrous as the infamous ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’ that had occurred the same day. Each year the Battery celebrates Balaclava day on the 25th October.
