Admiral Collingwood

Did you know...When Nelson was killed, Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood took over control of the British navy and won the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. This victory ended Napoleon's hopes of invading Britain.

When we lived in Glanton, I used to help out with some computer classes, and one of the people I taught was the grand-daughter of Lord Collingwood. She was a really nice lady.
