While the battle of Trafalgar would seem to have ended Napoleon’s ambitions and capability with regard to his long held desire to invade and conquer Britain, the fact is that the British fleet was required to blockade the major French ports for many years after the battle to prevent such an aim, a boring and tedious role.

Not until he was finally defeated at Waterloo in 1815 could the Royal Navy be fully recognised as the superpower of the age, with no rivals capable of stopping Britain’s political and industrial expansion. This was very much the Navy in which Sir Harry served with such distinction.

Dan will address the details of this momentous time in Britain’s history when the Navy was called on to held prevent the possible invasion of the country and how it’s power and dominance enabled the start of Britain’s worldwide expansion as a major power.

The talk will take place in the Gates Hall at the Lymington Centre at 7:00 pm on the 8th of November. The doors will open at 6:30 pm and the Centre Lounge Bar will also be open from 6:30 pm for refreshments.

Tickets cost £10 and can be obtained at the Reception in the Lymington Centre or online at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/admiral-harry-burrard-neales-navy-the-superpower-of-the-time-tickets-74181180909?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
