Thread Name: Happy Trafalgar Day!
Subject: RE: Happy Trafalgar Day!
I recall being on parade to celebrate Trafalgar Day every year at RHS. I am glad I don't have to do that any more. It was a big day in our history though, as it killed off any lingering prospect of an invasion. That being said, Napoleon's plans for invading were pretty ridiculous anyway. The importance of the battle may have been psychological, as it showed that the Napoleonic forces could be beaten decisively.
