el_punkoid_nouveau Happy Trafalgar Day! (47) Happy Trafalgar Day! 21 Oct 05

Seems a bit odd to celebrate the anniversary of so many deaths (not just Nelson - a lot of seamen died on both sides), but it was a pivotal day in the removal of a leader perceived at the time as a tyrant.

It is also a day to remember a great act of leadership - in his battle plan, Nelson broke all the rules of established Naval Warfare, and in so doing achieved a decisive victory, and probably at a much lower cost in terms of men than if the two sides had gone broadside to broadside. Where are the imaginitve leaders today?

"And a drop of Nelson's Blood wouldn't do us any harm!!
