Can someone help please. There is a local story (which maybe a myth) in Wantage, where I live that Robert Lloyd-Lindsey VC (later Lord Wantage) planted trees and plantations at his estate at Lockinge in the formations of the troops at the Battles of Alma and/or Inkerman where he won his VC.
The only way to prove this would be to compare O/S maps of today against the positions of the troops at the time during these battles particularly the Scots (Fusilier) Guards which was Lord Wantage's regiment. Does anyone have any such maps please that they could let me see.
I write a monthly column in our local newspaper about local history and am thinking this could be a topic for my next story.
