My Sebastopol post has gone a bit awry..And it is on twice....and i can’t delete it either.

If you click on the name at the top of the post you will find what i posted by scrolling down..

and can comment here.

Anyway i know that people from the area fought in Crimea and it was news of the success at Sevastopol that got the village it’s name,

But i thought it was in honour of one particular soldier but i could be completely wrong as i can’t find the evidence!

I'm not sure where I am supposed to comment. Here goes again. :)

" Great celebrations ensued in the town itself and surrounding district."

They must have had some special interest in that battle.

Was a Welsh unit with recruits from that area involved?

I can’t find what I’m looking for but I think one particular guy caused them to choose this name.

Certainly a Crimea veteran ran the post office as stated on the replies on website I attempted to copy and paste!

N'kay, what I know about Crimea is that Tsar Nicholas II was hoping to get exiled there, after his abdication. Also, I was thinking the other day...seems to be a larger number of wars carried out there, and I have wondered why...

Now, ima go see if I can find what you are attempting to post about Sebastopol, SFA! <3

I learnt about Crimean War at my college. My professor was Miloš Ković who is known in your country. He wrote the book Disraeli and the Eastern Question on English published by Oxford University Press.
