Re: Trafalgar

Thanks Thomas. I sometimes wonder about Nelson and the RN. Tradition is a fine thing, but sometimes I think the ĎNelson Touch' was over played through the ages, giving a false impression of invincibility. I think it was partly responsible for the shock and disbelief of Jutland . I get the impression that moral in the Present Day RN is not all it could be. Nothing wrong with the Service. The government have certainly gone several 'cuts too far' with all our services. When you build ships, it is a good idea to have the people to Crew them ALL.
However letís not get into politics, Iím not in the mood for comedy!.
Jim
