Happy Trafalgar Day

Hoorah! Mighty!

Today is the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar!

The day when Horatio Nelson and the English Navy beat the snot out of the combined French and Spanish fleets off Cape Trafalgar. A day of saying "Bugger the traditional tactics, follow me and let's go get 'em". It worked a treat.

Hoorah. With a ship called Victory, you can't lose!

So, do as the good Admiral did after the victory and get pickled tonight. (but perhaps not in a barrel of brandy and I recommend not being dead)
