Crimean War 1854-1856 (Series I)
King & Country UK are pleased to announce their exclusive series CRIMEA CAMPAIGN 1854 - 1856, which is available NOW!!!
However, it is our intention to cover all aspects of the Crimea Campaign with additional figures being added every 6 months.(June and December)
On the 14th September 1854, troops of a British Expeditionary Force, led by Lord FitzRoy Raglan, began to land on the shores of the Crimean peninsula at Calamita Bay, 32 miles north of their ultimate objective, the Russian naval port of Sevastopol. Ahead lay 18 months of unexpected misery for those lucky enough to survive. A short punitive campaign, culminating in swift seizure of Sevastopol, would prove just a pipedream.
