The Balaclava Survivors
To the Editor of the Standard.
Sir,-
Another of the few survivors of the celebrated Balaclava Charge has passed away in the person of No. 1510, Private John Brewington,
4th Regiment of Hussars (4th Queen's Own Light Dragoons).
This old hero has just died, after a brief illness, at his residence, 37, Breer-street, Wandsworth-bridge-road, Fulham, S.W.; and it is
suggested that he should be buried, in accordance with his own expressed wish, with military honours.
Perhaps your kind publication of this letter may induce the military authorities to render the necessary assistance to carry out so desirable
an object.
The funeral will take place at Fulham Cemetery on Thursday next, at three o'clock.
I am, Sir, your obedient servant,
Walter L. Brown.
49, Rosebury-road, Fulham, S.W. January 22.
