Victorys Loss by Mark Churms.
British Vice Admiral Nelson of the Royal Navy, is shot on the quarter deck of his flag ship, H.M.S. VICTORY at the height of the Battle of Trafalgar. He later dies from the mortal bullet wound. Despite this loss, the French and Spanish Fleets are roundly defeated in this epic sea engagement of the Napoleonic Wars.
