Photograph of a memorial to the 90th Light Infantry in the Crimea. The memorial is a small obelisk on a tiered base, with a clearly visible inscription to the soldiers of the 90th Light Infantry. It is surrounded by plants and there is another small obelisk a short distance from each corner. There is open land behind. Before they left the Crimea in 1856 the British created a number of cemeteries on the sites where regiments had camped during the Siege of Sevastopol.
