Trust me chaps, you don't need a comprehensive knowledge of Trafalgar for interview.

Recent history is far more pertinent.

(Who won by the way?)

I'm actually reading about this in one of my books. The british definitely captured a lot of people! haha. I think it was around 6,500 people.

The british one, of course.

It was against the French and Spanish.

*text deleted* i doubt you need expert knowledge of trafalgar. just remember we won, the french/dons lost and england was saved from invasion. we lost about 1,500 men spanish/french figures are around 17,000 dead or wounded. we also captured 17 ship (which only 4 made it into service)

but i doubt you will need that much info.

The english also lost a good naval commander, i think his name was Lord Nelson, or Sir Nelson, im not sure, but he was the genius who thought of the battle plan which beat the french and spanish
