Kiss Me, Hardy

It has been far too long since we have had an obscure British history post. Yesterday another milestone was reached when our delightful muse Jacqueline created post #1805 on our happy little blog. The year 1805 also happens to be a significant date for our cousins across the pond, when Admiral Lord Nelson defeated those cheese eating surrender monkeys (also known as the French) at The Battle of Trafalgar, thus preserving the British hegemony of the oceans.
