W. Britain, Matte Finish #41116 Horatio, Viscount Nelson in Full Dress

Admiral Lord Nelson in Full Dress uniform and wearing his principle medals and honours. On his cocked hat he wears the magnificent diamond Chelengk given to him after the Battle of the Nile in 1798.

On 21st October 1805 a British Fleet under the command of Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson not only destroyed the combined fleets of France and Spain, but with it Napoleon's dreams of invading Britain.
The Battle of Trafalgar was the most important naval engagement of the Napoleonic Wars, however the great victory was nearly overshadowed by national mourning at the loss of Lord Nelson, killed at the height of the battle on board his flagship HMS Victory.
To commemorate the bi-centenary of the battle approaching in 2005, W. Britain has created this special Trafalgar range capturing in stunning detail Nelson and his key officers Vice-Admiral Villeneuve and the men of the Combined Fleet who faced him.
