At age 29, John Berryman, Troop Sergeant-Major, 17th Lancers (Duke of Cambridge's Own) British Army was awarded Victoria's Cross for his actions in during the "Charge of the Light Brigade".
On 25 October 1854 at Balaclava, Crimea, Sergeant-Major Berryman, whose horse had been shot under him, stopped on the field with a wounded officer amidst a storm of shot and shell. Two sergeants, J. Farrell and J. Malone, came to his assistance and between them they carried the wounded officer out of range of the guns. He also saw service in the Angla Zulu War of 1879 as a Quartermaster Major and retired at that rank.
John Berryman was born in Dudley, Worcestershire on July 18, 1825, died at Woldingham on June 27, 1896. He is buried at St. Agatha's Church Yard, Woldingham.

Hi Mr Greaves

The reason I can be quick, is that the person mentioned is in my database. I have been collecting any info of these chaps for the last 20 years. I also used to go and photograph their graves but time and money puts a hold on grave hunting for now. :lol!:
