21 October - Trafalgar Day in Great Britain
October 21 is still celebrated as Trafalgar Day in many places. The battle was fought off Cape Trafalgar in the south-west of Spain. It marks the Royal Navy's victory over the French and Spanish fleets in the Battle of Trafalgar more than 200 years ago. On 21 October 1805, Royal Navy Commander Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson's fleet defeated the Franco-Spanish fleet that was attempting to invade the United Kingdom.
Trafalgar Day is the most important day in the calendar of HMS Victory, the oldest commissioned warship in the world. Each year on 21 October a ceremony is held on board Victory marking the anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, a battle which defined the Age of Sail and which sealed British dominion of the seas for a hundred years.
