    John Douglas led the 11th Hussars in the Charge of the Light Brigade. He survived without serious wound. He had been brought into the regiment by Lord Cardigan and as such, was one of Cardigan's supporters to the extent that he acted as second to the Earl in the duel with Captain Harvey Tuckett on Wimbledon Common on 12th September 1840. Tuckett, a former officer of the 11th and a popular hero of Bhurtpore had infuriated Cardigan by writing letters to the Morning Chronicle criticising Cardigan's treatment of his officers. Douglas was sent round to see Tuckett and demand an apology. This failed so the duel was fought with the result that Tuckett was severely wounded. Cardigan was tried by a friendly judge for illegal duelling and wounding, and was ludicrously discharged. Captain Douglas was also tried as an accessory to attempted murder and also acquitted.

    Born about 1810, in Glasgow, the son of Archibald Douglas and Anna McNeill, he married Rosa Maria Paget, daughter of Rt. Hon. Sir Arthur Paget and Lady Augusta Fane, on 10 March 1842. He lived in Glenfinart, Argyllshire, Scotland, and died on 10 May 1871, without issue.

    Nice figure,but the horse's chest muscles look a little unusual.Like a horse "six pack."

    Agree that the horse is a "distraction" of sorts from a finely presented figure.

    Nice figure, but I'm afraid the hands are way too big

    Is the scalloping on the sheepskin shabraque too big?

    Not sure about the horse muscularity and hair, special the tale,

    Very nice, but the horse does seem overly muscled and large. I wouldn't like to be on it when it takes off !

    Nice figure but as said above muscles and manes a bit exaggerated. Also it is a repetition of their previous horse in 54mm: Captain Theron, AdC of Lasalle.
