The troops were landed at three different points under the protection of the guns of the fleet. The first point was protected by a five-gun battery. The fire of the ships, however, soon silenced it, and the first division made good its landing.
It was then discovered that he had himself been severely wounded a second time. The gallantry of Sergeant George Symons was always conspicuous, but especially on the 6th of June 1855, when he volunteered to unmask the embrasures of a five-gun battery, in the advanced right attack.
