In Honour of the Day

My vexillological contribution to Trafalgar Day. (I won’t let this lie will I Mark?) ;0)

“My character and good name are in my own keeping. Life with disgrace is dreadful. A glorious death is to be envied.”
Horatio Nelson, 21 October 1805

Meanwhile, Tom Utley in the Telegraph thinks we need another Nelson. He could have a point.

But certain death and eternal fame, or ignominious defeat and an old age? What would you choose? There are days when the former has its attractions.
