I do realise I am asking for a lot of help and not contributing much, but I was really hoping that somebody would be able to assist me.
I have acquired an item that belonged to C.J.Clerk of the 21st Lancers and found a source that states he was in front of Churchill at the start of the Cavalry Charge:
http://www.britishmedals.us/collections ... rison.html
“At the front of ”A” squadron were 2nd Lieutenant John Brinton of the 2nd Life Guards, and Lieutenants Churchill 4th
Hussars, Robert Smyth 21st Lancers and Frank Wormald 7th Hussars. Just ahead of them rode Major Henry Finn, an
Australian commanding the squadron and Lieutenant Charles Clerk 21st Lancers”
Unfortunately the author is unable to verify (although I believe him) his source and I am loathe to put something in print that I can't source.
Thus the question is does anyone know the source of the above information or does anyone know the positions of the Lancers at the beginning of the charge.
Thanks for all your help
