Fanny Duberly (1829-1903) was an adventurous soldiers wife who witnessed the Crimean War and Sepoy Mutiny. Her husband, Captain Henry Duberly, was the paymaster to the 8th Royal Irish Hussars, part of the famed Light Brigade of Balaclava. The published journal of her time in the Crimea: Journal Kept During the Russian War (1856) not only includes splendid accounts of what she saw, but also is a good record of all the rumors and gossip of the army. As the only woman at the front-lines, she was the center of much attention. She was told of planned attacks ahead of time, giving her the opportunity to be in a good position to witness them.
