I've spent a fair amount of time curled up with the memoirs of Admiral Saumarez, which I got for Christmas - that sounds like an insult to him, but it's not really; I've enjoyed his serial letters home, and just not worried too much about what's going on. I've only just reached Algeciras in any case, and I have no idea about anything that happened before that unless Collingwood was involved.
On that note, this amused me: Captain Ball writing to Captain Saumarez in October 1798
When you get your second medal, beware of the ladies, if they hear such a story of you as of our friend Collingwood.Intriguing image :)
I really shouldn't go dancing tonight - but the group running it need the support, and I would mind not getting to go...
