The French and British forced the fall of Sebastopol on 11 September 1855. It happened 150 years ago and in fact it was the end of Crimean war. Great Britain won, defeated obviously strong enemy. I have read that VC's are manufacturing from captured Russian cannons even now (and VC was introduced that time). But I was surprised that this remarkable event, great victory was not mentioned on BBC, on other main British news-sources. There were no celebrations. Or maybe they took place? (as a foreigner I'm not well informed). If my suggestions are true then how soon heroes of moders wars would be forgotten?
