A stunning signed cdv of Evelyn Wood, taken shortly after he won the Victoria Cross in the India Muitiny when he was serving in the 17th Lancers (Isandula Collection)

Stunning Ron. Evelyn Wood had also served in the Crimea as part of the Naval Brigade and apparently came close to winning a VC there as well. I also like to think there just might be a connection to a family ancestor of ours who served as an Orderly with the Medical Staff Corps on B Corridor at the Barrack Hospital at Scutari. Wood had been admitted to Scutari in February 1856 following his return to the Crimea - this time with the Cavalry. He apparently was in a very bad way and had allegedly been mistreated. He was rescued by his mother.

Yes, Steve, I seem to recall that Donald Morris wrote that Wood was quite accident prone and had health issues. He certainly transferred around a lot in various services and units, and having a V.C., he obviously was in favor.

You can't choose your family! Just another little piece of cross-over research from the Crimea to AZW.

Lt. Charles Steel, 12th Lancers, set forth for the Crimea with his regiment in 1855. Yet Steel was never mustered in the Crimea with the regiment but he was named twice in General Orders and once in the Scutari District Orders. Later Steel made a claim for the Crimea Medal with clasp for Sebastopol. It turns out that Steel had spent one day on shore in Balaclava Harbour and the rest sick on board ship or at Scutari. General Codrington replied to Steel's four page claim in blistering terms in which he said "for all I know the wording of the letter may entitle anyone for an hours looking at the shore to a Crimea Medal and the very distant sound of a gun to the clasp for Sebastopol'.

Lt. Charles Steel was Col. Evelyn Wood's brother in law - it is not recorded what the Colonel thought!

With full acknowledgement to Tony Margrave and the Crimean War Research Society.
