Photograph of memorials to the 77th Regiment in a British cemetery near Sevastopol. The graves are surrounded by low stone walls, and several have gravestones. Behind the graves there is a stone wall and a large camp can be seen in the distance. Before they left the Crimea in 1856 the British created a number of cemeteries where regiments had camped during the Siege of Sevastopol.
