George Cathcart
Birth: unknown
Death: 1854

British Army Lieutenant General. During the Crimean War, his reluctance to bring up his infantry division at the Battle of Balaklava was a major factor in bringing about the disaster of the "Charge of the Light Brigade". He was killed 11 days later at the Battle of Inkerman. One of the hills in the 'Valley of Death' was named Cathcart Hill after him and was the site of the major British war cemetery. However this cemetery was extensively destroyed during World War II. In recent time, some remains, including those of General Cathcart, have been gathered into a memorial enclosure.
