Yes - the posters were up yesterday in Gibraltar for the Trafalgar Day celebrations. :)

And there was a poppy wreath on Lieutenant William Forster's grave (HMS Colossus)

I was unable to get online yesterday, but nevertheless spared a thought for those who fought at Trafalgar.

Did any member do anything particular to mark the anniversary?
