  • Notes

    • Captain Lewis Nolan was a real person who was indeed killed at the charge of the Light Brigade; however, he was not involved in the notorious "black bottle" incident of several months earlier, as this film depicts. It was a Captain Reynolds who was accused by Lord Cardigan of ordering a "black bottle" at dinner (which Cardigan insisted was beer, though it was actually Moselle), when officers traditionally drank only champagne. The wine had actually been ordered by the journalist William Russell, who was a guest at the dinner.
