In Commemoration of Lord Nelson, Conway Stewart proudly
presents the 'Trafalgar Limited Edition'
On the 21st of October, 1805 Lord Nelson
and his flagship HMS Victory earned undying fame at the Battle of Trafalgar.
The British fleet of 27 ships beat the combined French
and Spanish fleet of 33 ships. No British ship was lost and 22 of
the French and Spanish fleet were seized or destroyed. The French
and Spanish lost 4,400 men and the British 450 - Nelson himself the
most famous of them. The courage and skill of Nelson and his men ensured
the supremacy of the British Navy for the next 100 years.
The impact of this sea battle on the future development of the British
Empire is immeasurable.
