Nelson's last signal at Trafalgar, 21 October 1805.
At the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805, Nelson gives his famous last signal 'England expects that every man will do his duty'. He had said to his officers 'I must give the Fleet something by way of a fillip'. This last signal certainly buoyed the Fleet as there was an answering of enthusiastic cheering and England went on to win the battle though Nelson lost his life that day. This reproduction is from the original painting by Thomas Davidson.
