HMS Victory Standard B&W Sterling Silver Fountain Pen

The chill of the October wind seemed to howl louder than usual across the English Channel that day in 1805.


But it couldn’t discourage the steady stare of a man, studying the horizon through one eye, amongst the ocean waves. His left arm firmly rested on the side of his loyal ship, his right sleeve, empty and pinned to his coat. This half-blinded, one armed Admiral had left everything he cherished behind and now stood in position to fight the greatest naval battle England had ever seen. His determination was phenomenal, his intelligence vital and his solid, strong appearance never wavered, even in the unimaginable intensity of his final battle. This day, he stood quietly in anticipation, waiting for the madness to begin, knowing he would stop at nothing to defend the shorelines of his country from the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.



The man is Lord Nelson.


The battle is Trafalgar.


The ship is the HMS Victory.


The day is one of the greatest in all the history of England.


One that shall never be forgotten.
