On this Trafalgar Day, you can raise your glass to our dear Old Cuddy and the other heroes of the Battle of Trafalgar at his North Tyneside monument.

The event has been organised by North Tyneside Council in honour of Collingwood’s role in directing the British fleet to victory at the 1805 battle against the French and Spanish as his commanding officer and best friend, Horatio Nelson, lay mortally wounded.

Proceedings will start at 11.40am and will include a short address by Captain Stephen Healy; the toast will be held at noon.

Not of the toast itself – I was too busy listening :)

Yes please.

(ermm… *technologically challenged*… I don’t remember how WordPress works; are you able to message me privately or do I have to send you a link?)

I don’t know either – but you should be able to work out my @livejournal.com email address from the above link, and we can try from there?
