What is a Light Brigade?

1 Answer

  1. The phrase “Light Brigade” is used in the poem “The Charge of the Light Brigade” for the British Army who marched to Russia to fight against their forces. The word Brigade means sub-division of the army.

    Here in the poem, the British Army consisted of 600 soldiers which the poet mentions repeatedly through out the verses. The word Light has been used for the troops because they were without heavy weapons like cannons and guns.

    The Brigade had only swords which is a Light weapon as compared to the weapons which the Russian Army had.
