The third game to feature from this month's meeting of the DWG is a Trafalgar re-fight, very appropriate in the week of Lord Nelson's victory over the combined fleets, using 'Grand Fleet Actions in the Age of Sail'.

Very much ashamed of some brits. Lived for a while on the other side of a street from a woman named Hamilton.
Once having collected a parcel for her (postman knew I was there)
I brought it and said " a gift from Horatio"- a blank – added Nelson? Another blank. Then she was thanking me, and obviously I said "everyone is expected to do his duty" another blank, no doubt putting this on foreigner's behaviour.

Or local club also did Trafalgar. A close victory for the French and Spanish.

I commanded the latter, and sank HMS victory, But lost my own flag ship in the end.

The ships shown in the link at the top are beautiful. Are they all different representing the actual ships involved. Who makes these?
