      Fie on you. Speak not of dear Nelson when it was truly our loyal
      Collingwood that won the Battle of Trafalgar. How did these myths get
      started? I believe Nelson ended up on the orlop deck, hardly a great rise
      to aspire to.

        Mr. Williams,

        How does Nelson figure into Hand to Hand ?!?
        Look at the subject ........

        Fighting spirit is all very well, but perhaps more of our revered heroes might have given some thought to the value they would be to their nation and the men

          might have given some thought to the value they would be to their nation and
          the men they led if they had made arrangements to have an even chance of
          surviving instead of croaking with glory. Brock leading the lads up the
          slope at Queenston and Nelson standing about on the open deck of VICTORY
          with all his orders and decorations on come to mind as brave actions, but
          not entirely responsible ones. Canada needed Brock alive, not a heroic
          corpse shovelled into the ramparts of Fort George. And the Brits (not to
          mention Emma Hamilton) could have found a few more uses for Horatio...

            EEEEYIKES!

            This is exactly the kind of thing that makes me icky!
            I mean what are these guys wearing and why do they have facial hair?
            And why do these pictures look like they came from the initial
            training session for that "Pyrate" show at the Las Vegas casino?

            EEEW!

            Ok...I'm OK now. Just keep breathing deeply...Please don't show me
            any more scary pictures Vic. (what did I ever do to you?)
