Note

The Alma is a river on the Crimea peninsular in the Ukraine. The first battle of the Crimea war between Russian soldiers and a successful, but unusually united, combined British and French force was fought here on the 20th September 1854. The Russian counter-attack one month later was at Balaclava which is today better remembered for one of the British cavalry's most famous heroic disasters.
