The New Trafalgar Dispatch - Falmouth to London - 2005

(July 01, 2005)

Viscount Admiral Lord Nelson died at the height of the battle of Trafalgar and it fell to his second in command, Vice Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood to write the official account for the Admiralty. Two hundred years later, the New Trafalgar Dispatch celebrates Nelson's memory and all the heroes at the battle, which was a defining moment in British history.
