A Service was held at the Britannia Monument in Great Yarmouth to honour Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, who was killed by a French sniper at the Battle of Trafalgar, on Monday 21st October 1805. The Service also commemorated all the men who took part in the battle.

Alison Green from the Nelson Museum, Great Yarmouth gave an account of the Battle of Trafagar and a description of the events that culminated in the death of Admiral Nelson.

At 13:15, approximately the time Admiral Nelson was mortally wounded, the East Norfolk Militia fired a gun to re-enact the event.

A tot of Rum or Orange was distributed to all present to toast Horatio Nelson's immortal memory.
