Here we are on the headland on the east side of Balaklava harbor in 1997. Note that the submarine that was moored on the left in the 1993 photo is now gone as is the large freighter, but the dry dock remains. One gets an idea of the manner in which the inlet curves twice between its entrance and the other end.
Here we have moved to a location behind the Russian artillery line, which was approximately where the tree line is now. We view toward Sapun Gor ridge. The Causeway height is on the left. The Light Brigade charged from the far end of this valley straight toward us and passed through the Russian artillery line.
Here we are well south-east of the line of Russian artillery that was in the valley behind the large bush. The Light Brigade formed at the far end of the valley about where the trees and white building appear now and passed through the artillery and clear off the photo on the right edge. One of the Russian cavalry units that then intercepted the British came from this location.
A closer view of Canrobert's hill from the east - the direction from which the Russians attacked - a corner of the Kadikoi - Balaklava area is visible to the left and part of the Sapun gor ridge is visible to the right.
