Which is why a lot of us will be meeting tonight at Settle Social Club, the home of Settle Folk Club, for a weekend in celebration of Trafalgar Day and Lord Nelson. We start this evening with the Admiral's dinner (too late if you wanted to book a meal, but you could still turn up with your own food), then tomorrow a day of walking, workshops and an evening concert, and on Sunday, after breakfast and another sing, we shall finish.

Sir Henry John Newbolt (1897)

. Admirals All

       A Song of Sea Kings

    EFFINGHAM, Grenville, Raleigh, Drake,
       Here's to the bold and free!
    Benbow, Collingwood, Byron, Blake,
       Hail to the Kings of the Sea!
    Admirals all, for England's sake,
       Honour be yours and fame!
    And honour, as long as waves shall break,
       To Nelson's peerless name!

                   Admirals all, for England's sake,
                                  Honour be yours and fame!
                   And honour, as long as waves shall break,
                            To Nelson's peerless name!

Have you all a great time in Settle. Bold Nelson's Praise!!!

~Michael~

Many years ago Punch ran some cartoons for Trafalgar Day.

One by Bill Tidy showed two French snipers up in the crows nest, One is saying to the other "See that guy with all the scrambled egg? Here's two sous you can't get him in the OTHER EYE!!!"

And we mustn't forget the other cartoon that I mentioned before on this subject ;
      Hardy is bending over a prostrate Nelson, who looks at him and says
   " Nothing too ostentatious , Hardy ! About a hundred and fifty feet, and get old Whatsisname to knock up a few lions around the base !"

      Anyway , I'm glad that this thread has reminded me of the occasion ; I'm more of a Taranto Night person really , but I shall still toast " The Immortal Memory" with a glass of something this evening ( sitting down , of course !).

I got back from the evening gig last night and raised a glass of Wood's Navy before hitting the sack.
