Francis George Holmes is coming up in search but no Henry Holmes.
Is this because he is in the hospital, I wonder?

I can't find him in that book either but the action on 26th October 1854 is described at the bottom of page 158 - see the citations for Sgt T Shaw  and Private J Andrews  re the capture of a Russian mounted officer at the sortie - that's the word I couldn't make out in Henry's army discharge papers.

I think the book you need to find is "Recipients of the Distinguished Conduct Medal, 1855-1909" by PE Abbott
