006-01The 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar and the Death of Admiral Lord Nelson was commemorated in London by a flotilla of over forty boats, which sailed upstream from Greenwich to Westminster on 16 September 2005, following the route taken by Nelson's funeral procession on 8 January 1806. Henry Paston-Bedingfeld, York Herald, took his position, in uniform, just in front of the funeral barge itself.

The College of Arms will mark this last great heraldic funeral with a photo-graphic exhibition of items from the archives that relate to Nelson and his evolving armorial bearings. The exhibition will take place from early October in the Earl Marshal's Court at the College of Arms, and admission will be free. For further information contact the College of Arms. Illustrated left are the Arms exemplified to William, Earl Nelson following the death of his brother Horatio. A further augmentation was added to the shield in 1807 in honour of Trafalgar.
