CAKE!
FIREWORKS!
THE CONGA TWICE AROUND HIS MONUMENT IN TYNEMOUTH!

Here’s to one of Britain’s finest –
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OLD CUDDY!

I’ve promised you a special treat in celebration of our favourite admiral’s birthday, and here it is!

You can download the story “Last Service”, an excerpt from the book “The Radiant Boy – Four Ghost Stories in the Age of Sail” by Emma Collingwood (not related) for free over at her website.

The beautiful illustrations were done by the amazing Amandine de Villeneuve.

Old Cuddy, Horatio Nelson and the Victory in one tale, who could ask for more? Have fun!

I’ve updated the link in the previous post as an updated flyer has become available, containing the email address of The Collingwood Society. If you’d like to contact them, you can do so on

collingwoodsociety    at    yahoo.co.uk

And now for something completely different…

Old Cuddy’s birthday is just ’round the corner, and I can promise you a nice surprise this year. ;-)

Christmas will come early this year! This is the news all of us have been waiting for:

Trafalgar Day 2012 will see the launch of the Collingwood Society!

Just click on the picture below to read the flyer with all the information you’ll need (for now).

The old Collingwood 2010 Festival website will morph into the Society’s site in due course, and more information will follow soon.

This is very exciting; I wish The Collingwood Society a great start and many, many dedicated members. Here’s to Old Cuddy!
