Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. For a story I'm writing for my boy;

    When did Nelson host his dinner for the captains before Trafalgar? I seem to recall that he held two; I'm interested in when Duff of the Mars was there.

    Also, who would Duff have taken with him? How many of what rating would have been part of the Captain's party?

    Thanks!!
     
  2. Try putting "The life of Nelson" into google, no need to write the story, It`s been done before, good luck.
     
  3. Yeah, but I don't think anyone's written the story of James Dalton, my mother's ancestor, who was a boy on HMS Mars at the time of the battle. I want a way of getting him to the Victory so that when I visit Portsmouth with my 6-year-old he has a bit more of a connection.
     
  4. Thanks soleil, nice graphic.
