Sacr'd to Nelson

A small chest at The Castle has these handles, "Sacr'd to Nelson - Trafalgar" - probably just a cheap souvenir 200 years ago but rather nice now.


Very good couple of Nelson articles in Naval History Magazine over here. Especially good one on battle doctrine and tactics.

Does it say "Made in Taiwan" anywhere? If not, call Antiques Roadshow and make a bundle...maybe.

All kidding aside, I like your hardware, big fella.

First, you must implicitly obey orders… Secondly, you must consider every man as your enemy who speaks ill of your King... And thirdly, you must hate a Frenchman as you do the devil. --- Admiral Horatio Nelson on how to survive in the English Navy.
