Nelson Society
  • This event has passed.

Lord Nelson’s connections with Bath have been well documented (even today you can sit in his favourite spot by the fireplace in the Crystal Palace pub in Abbey Green).

So the city was a natural choice when the Nelson Society wanted to hold their Battle of Copenhagen Commemoration earlier this year. The highly successful event was held at the BRLSI in April, with fascinating talks from historian and Nelson biographer Professor Andrew Lambert, Nelson Society historian Lt Col Ray Aldis and Nelson Society chairman Chris Brett. The BRLSI and the Society hope to collaborate on more projects in the future.

For anyone wanting to dive more deeply into the world of one of Britain’s greatest military heroes in the meantime, the Nelson Society will be holding its Battle of the Nile Commemoration in Exeter on August 5th. Lunch will be at the Devon Hotel, with talks before and after the meal: Graham Capel from the Nelson Society will talk on ‘Two young men at the Battle of the Nile’ and Lily Style, a descendant of Nelson and founder of the Emma Hamilton Society, will talk on ‘Lady Hamilton’s unsung branding of the modern navy.’
