The Battle of Trafalgar

“England expects every man will do his duty”
.
Admiral Nelson's crushing defeat of the French and Spanish Navies, establishing Britain as the dominant world naval power for a century. As the British Fleet bore down on the Franco-Spanish line Nelson directed Lieutenant Pascoe, the signal officer of Victory, to send the signal to the Fleet “Nelson confides every man will do his duty.” Captain Hardy and Pascoe suggested this be changed to “England expects every man will do his duty”. Nelson agreed. As the signal ran up Victory’s halyard the Fleet burst into cheers. Nelson followed this with his standard battle signal “Engage the enemy more closely”. An American captain sailing into Cadiz assured the French admiral that Nelson was still in London. How wrong he was, in the forth comming battle the French and Spanish Fleets were anhilatedAlthough it cost Nelson his life, in his final letter Nelson asked that the Nation look after his mistress, Lady Emma Hamilton, and their daughter, Horatia, but nothing was done and she died in povity in Calais in 1815.You can trace any member of the British Fleet by searching on this web site:
