Thread Name: Happy Trafalgar Day!
Subject: RE: Happy Trafalgar Day!
On the telly this morning they showed the laying of a wreath at the place where Nelson died. This was in the State Room on the Victory. It was hilarious! The Naval folk there were far too tall for the room (we grow them bigger nowadays) and it was obviously ill rehearsed, or perhaps unrehearsed, and lacked all the usual organisation of a Navy ritual. Worth a viewing just for a laugh!
