C240 Battle of Trafalgar 200th Anniversary
Issue Date: October 21, 2005
The Marshall Islands commemorates the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar with the issuance of new postage
stamps featuring legendary fighting ships and the historic HMS Victory that distinguished itself at the Battle of Trafalgar.
On October 21, 1805, Admiral Horatio Nelson, commander of
the British fleet, engaged Franco-Spanish ships at Trafalgar, thwarting Napoleon's attempt to control the English Channel and invade Britain. Hailed as one of the most significant battles in
naval history, the Battle of Trafalgar established Britain's naval supremacy for more than 100 years.
Designed by acclaimed artist Brian Sanders, the Legendary Fighting Ships stamps feature
25 of the world's greatest fighting ships, including such memorable vessels as the Bonhomme Richard, commanded by John Paul Jones during the American Revolution; a Ming Treasure ship from
15th century China; the Nuestra Señora del Rosario of the Spanish Armada, and more. The HMS Victory Souvenir Sheet -- also designed by Brian Sanders -- features Nelson's
flagship Victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.
