Into the Valley of Death

By drizzle
This photo is of a pair of military boots with an ABU cap resting on top. I titled the picture "Into the Valley of Death" after the poem called "Charge of the Light Brigade" by Lord Tennyson in the 1800s, in which 600 noble soldiers fought and survived. The poem began like so:

"Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
Into the Valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
'Forward the Light Brigade!'
'Charge for the guns!' He said:
Into the Valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

"'Forward, the Light Brigade!'
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the Valley of Death
Rode the six hundred."
