Happy Anniversary to my British cousins. It was 200 years ago yesterday that the RN under Admiral Nelson defeated the French Navy at Trafalgar. This accomplished two things at least: Stopped any invasion plans the French had in mind. It assured British Navy supremacy for at least a century.

A Virtual pint of Rum for everyone! :beer:

Don't want to be big headed but wasn't it was the combined French and Spanish fleets.

That virtual rum is going down well :beer: to both of you.

My Bad! Yes that is true, but then the Spanish became your allies.

Tony,

You're correct. The Royal Navy fleet of 27 ships fighted an allied French and Spanish fleet of 33 ships. The allies lost 22 ships; the British none.
