THE LIFE GUARDS
HOUSEHOLD BRIGADE CHARGE
The figurine, made by Ballantynes of Walkerburn, depicts a trooper of the Life Guards at the height of the charge. He wields the standard issue, straight cavalry sabre and carries a cavalry carbine against his saddle. We have displayed the figurine with his bearskin uncovered, however, following the heavy rains of the previous night, the regiment went into battle with their headgear covered.
