A Cornish mystery…

HMS Pickle was in a hurry, she has all possible sail set; she had Admiral Collingwood’s official Trafalgar dispatch aboard.

  • We know from HMS Pickle‘s log book, she had all possible sail set as she approached The Lizard Point, the most Southerly mainland of the British Isles. 
  • The Trafalgar Dispatch is news that is going to stun the British nation.
  • HMS Pickle as shown here includes details never seen before, only recently discovered by myself and the redoubtable Mr. Peter Goodwin.
  • Pickle’s crew, in the early morning light, spoke with Cornish fishermen thus inadvertently attached a legend to Pickles story … on the 4 th of November 1805.
