Answer for the first of three events

Battle of Trafalgar - 21 October 1805– Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, 1st Duke of Bronté, Order of the Bath ordered the famous flag hoist before the battle “England expects that every man to do his duty” Nelson was also famous for the Battle of the Nile where in decisive action he eliminated the French Fleet from the Mediterranean Sea. BTW neither worked out very well for Admiral Nelson – he was wounded at the Nile and killed at Trafalgar.
