In one of the most decisive naval battles in history, a British fleet under Admiral Lord Nelson defeats a combined French and Spanish fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar, fought off the coast of Spain.

At sea, Lord Nelson and the Royal Navy consistently thwarted Napoleon Bonaparte, who led France to pre-eminence on the European mainland. Nelson's last and greatest victory against the French was the Battle of Trafalgar, which began after Nelson caught sight of a Franco-Spanish force of 33 ships.

Preparing to engage the enemy force on October 21, Nelson divided his 27 ships into two divisions and signalled a famous message from the flagship Victory: 'England expects that every man will do his duty'.

Published in Hurricane Annual 1967 and reprinted in the World of Knowledge Book 1982.
