A ceremony was held onboard the HMS Victory earlier today to commemorate the 208th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.
The ship itself was at the battle where it served as Lord Nelson’s flagship and remains commissioned ship in the Royal Navy and the oldest commissioned warship in the world.
The Battle of Trafalgar is one of the greatest battles in British naval history. Against a numerically superior Franco-Spanish Fleet it was the better tactics, leadership, equipment and personnel that won the battle.
Although the battle was a success, the victory would cost Admiral Lord Nelson his life.
