I am grateful to John Sloan for permission to use the photographs that appear on the Xenophongi web site and which graciously he has agreed to share with the Victorian Web. Copyright, of course, remains with him.The photographs come from William Simpson's The Seat of War in the East, second series. The photographs were made by Colonel (Ret) George W. Page, from the copy of this rare book at the Museum of the Heroic Defense of Sevastopol through the kind offices of Dr . V. Krestiyannikov. — Marjie Bloy Ph.D., Senior Research Fellow, National University of Singapore. Click on thumbnails for larger pictures.
