Sunset at Nelson the Seal, Looe, Cornwall
A Bronze sculpture by Suzie Marsh, on Pennyland Rocks in Looe harbour, Cornwall, UK is a memorial to Nelson, a one-eyed bull grey seal. Nelson was a familiar site in the harbors of Cornwall, UK for over 25 years, and a great favorite with all. After his death in 2003, a life size bronze sculpture was made by Suzie Marsh and placed on Pennyland Rocks. In May 2008 the statue was unveiled by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston CBE, and was honored by a flypast by 849 Naval Air Squadron.

Nelsons 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.
