jThe Battle of Inkerman.; -8f. ^•ANNIVERSARY OF A GLORIOUS DAY. Hew the 41st Welsh Fought. On the morning of the 5th of November, 1854, the Russians in great numbers (45.000) attacked the British Arn.y on Inkerman Heights, when the pickets of the Greuadier Company and the L.ght Company were under the command of Captain Rowlands, who held his ground step by step, rund when Colonel Heniy, who was in full command of the pickets, was taken prisoner. Captain Rowlands charged with the Grenadier Company, and rescued him from the Russians. Sergeant-Major Andrews Madden, with two Grenadiers, also cut off and ciptured 13 Russians and one officer, making three pt-isoners to his own share. He must have done this after the fashion of the Connaught man. Then came up the main body of the 41st Regiment, under the command of Col. Cart writer. The sketch we give was taken upon the spot by an artillery officer, and represents the lastresting- place of the gallant Coi. George Carpenter, of the 41st Regiment, who led one of the outlying pickets of the 2nd Brigade 2nd Divi- sion on the memorable 5th of November, 1854. After his wound Colonel Carpenter refused to retire to the rear shortly afterwards a second ball laid him low. Idolised as he had been by his men, four of them endeavoured to bear him from tha field. At this juncture, however, the Russians made a desperate onslaught on their thinned ranks. L(,tve, me, my men," be cried, and save yourselves." The slender remnant of that gallant band were now surrounded by the enemy, and in the melee that ensued their brave leader, whose life was fast ebbing away, was left on the ground. In this helpless scate a Russian soldier, clubbing his musket, struck him on the head and began rifling his pockets. Ere he could bo rescuoo the colonel had sustained such injuries that he only survived them for a few hours. Adjoining his humble grave upon the heights of Inkerman, and overlooking the Tchernaya, the remains of four of his brother officers lay buried not far from where they fell. COL. CAilPKNTEJl'S GRA Vlt AT INKRUMAN, And four other officers of the regiment—4lst Welsh.! Interesting Letter from a Veteran of the Welsh Regiment. Writing from Cork to an old comrade in the Welsh Regiment, Sergeant Thomas Foster, Mr James Morrison, who served with the regiment throtiglioul, the Crimea, says:—" I have setii by papers lately that the old colours of the 41st Foot were granted hy the Secretary of War to be rp- moved from Wrexham to Llandnff C ithedral, and that a military parada would take place, and that a few others would be allowed the lion(-uc of attending. I would mention with veference to those two colours that I had the duty (or job, as we would say now) of washing the colour belt the dayafter.Inkerman, as they were covered with the blood of the two officers that carried them on the 5th of November, 1854, at Inkerman. The officers were both shot dead, and you can guess in what state they were when I say that they were shot in the head and neck. Their names were Serling and Lockhow, if I recollect aright, and our dear Colonel G. ClI" penter and two others, with a few officers, were wounded. I not forget our friend Sir Hugh Rowlands, V.C. I heard that he was to be promoted to general shortly, and proud I was to learn it. I inu?t also mention to you, I daresay you can recollect Tom McPherson, Light Com- pany. He was my comrade when iu No. 6 Com- pany. He came to that company from the 93rd Highlanders before the Crimea, and he got a great many wounds at Inkerman besides a. bullet in the head and sixteen prods from the Russians when on the ground."
