‘I’ Troop Royal Horse Artillery was present throughout the campaign in the Crimea, attached to the Cavalry division, and at the affair of Bulganak, had the honour of firing the opening guns of the campaign. Together with ‘C’ Troop, they were the only Horse Artillery to qualify for all four clasps, and were detailed by Lord Raglan to support the Light Brigade at Balaklava.
