Horatio Nelson, a true hero
He won the battle of Trafalgar
He died in the Victory
The crew placed his body in a cask of brandy mixed with camphor and myrrh,
lashed to the Victory’s mainmast and placed under guard.
He was carved in stone and placed on a 151 foot column in Trafalgar Square
Nelson was a valiant hero to the English nation
He was missed as a person as well as a hero
It’s odd for me as I pass his column I look up to him and I am proud
I look up to him as a hero
He was missed by everyone particularly my dad’s family
I look up to him also as a family member because
He happens to be my great, great, great Grandfather
He was so great that he had a ship The Lord Nelson named after him
A ship I sailed on many years later
A story to tell the grandchildren.
