Guest Evans of the Broke

The defence of the Sandbag Battery in the fog against overwhelming odds is one of the epics of British military history. On that day the Brigade of Guards, of which the 3rd Battalion of the Grenadier Guards formed part, lost half its officers and men, but not a single prisoner or an inch of ground.

Where was the date & location and any other details associated with this action. Thanks.

Sounds like the battle of The Alma in the Crimean War but I stand to be corrected.

Just re read the question and I'm complete;y wrong - please ignore this.
