Long Description:
The picture seems to be taken from a portrait by William Salter shown on this Wikipedia website.

Although Lord Raglan had a largely successful arm career and fought with the Duke of Wellington he is largely remembered for the fateful Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava.

As well as the traditional pub sign, there is also a terracotta relef carving of the bust of Lord Raglan high up on the pub wall.

The pub was closed in 2015 after a large brawl on the premises.
