Tagged: Trafalgar, Nelson, Flags
A friend of mine is looking for the origins of the French standard eminently portrayed during Nelson’s funeral at St Paul’s.
The Spanish one is the San Ildefonso’s standard, but does anyone knows from which ship the French one came from ?
Very many thanks for this. Do you have an image or a link to an image so we can see what the flag looks like and it’s position?
Of course here it is.
