are now a days an significant part of my life story.

Building on my general interest in this subject pre 1993, over the years I was Official Artist I took full advantage of the opportunities, the many kindnesses, the doors opened, the archives many generally closed to the public, opened to create an exceptional collection of documents, photographs and books.

It is satisfying to be delving again, into my collection, re reading and have an opportunity to explain the many popular misconceptions about what actually happened at that key moment during the battle of Trafalgar.
