Subject: RE: BS: Lord Nelson's flagship
We're very good at destroying our history in the UK.

Darwin's ship rotted unnoticed.
Vandals torched the the Cutty Sark (although her restoration proceeds now)
The battle to save the Medway Queen (paddlewheel pleasure cruiser who went to Dunkirk) will I think be lost eventually.

And so on.
