Old Cuddy goes global, and previews of the upcoming celebrations in Menorca are trickling in. I absolutely love the idea of planting trees in his honour!

BBC: LORD COLLINGWOOD HONOURED IN MENORCA BY PLANTING TREES

Three oak tree saplings are being planted during a weekend of commemorative events in Menorca – where Collingwood spent his final years.

The trees are a gift to the island as part of the Collingwood 2010 Festival, a year-long celebration of the Admiral’s life.

They have been donated by Corbridge-based Trees Please nursery.
