RCIN 2500314

Frances Isabella Duberly (1829–1902), known as Fanny, accompanied her husband Captain Henry Duberly (1822–91), Paymaster of the 8th Hussars, to the war against the orders of Lord Raglan. She kept a journal of her experience, which included witnessing the Battle of Balaklava. She was also one of the first civilians to enter Sevastopol after it fell to the allies. Mrs Duberly attempted to dedicate the published version of her journal to Queen Victoria, titled Journal Kept During the Russian War, but this gesture was refused.
