Stanza 1
The light calvary was marching to the Valley of Death because the foes were no match for
them. It was like committing suicide. They were 600 of them riding horses figthing in a
battle. Their leader ordered them to move forward and consficate the guns to prevent the
guns from being carried away by the enemies.
Stanza 2
The soldiers were still moving foward. No one was discouraged by the fact that
somebody had made a foolish mistake by giving them a wrong order. They were not in
the position to answer any questions nor to ask why. They kept on moving because it was
their responsibility and they recieved order from their superior. Even if the were fated to
die, all the six hundred of them were still moving forward.
Stanza 3
The soldiers bravely fought the battle. They were attacked from their right, their left but
they still moved forward. True enough, they were also attacked from the front. But they
marched fearlessly to the Valley of Death and fought until their last breaths.
