Just before the battle Nelson made his famous signal, 'England expects that every man will do his duty'. It is said that as the signal was hoisted and repeated through out the fleet, a great cheer went up. The last signal to be executed was for 'Close Action', and this signal remained at the mast until it was shot away.
