The 1805 Club was founded in 1990 to care for the memorials of the Georgian sailing navy. They are a vital yet often neglected part of Britain's naval heritage. No other organisation is dedicated to their preservation. We:

  1. Conserve monuments and memorials relating to seafaring people of the Georgian era and in particular Admiral Lord Nelson.
    For more information on Admiral Lord Nelson please visit The 1805 Club's site www.admiralnelson.org.
  2. Promote and publish research into the Royal Navy of the Georgian period, and especially Admiral Lord Nelson.
  3. Organise cultural and historical events for the enjoyment and edification of our membership and the public in general.
The 1805 Club is a registered charity No. 1071871

Nelson - ON THIS DAY - April

24th April 1795: On red hot shot to the Duke of Clarence: 'I hope, and believe, if we only get three sail from England, that we shall prevent this fleet of the enemy doing further service in the Mediterranean, not with-standing the red-hot shot and combustibles, of which they have had a fair trial and found them useless. They believe that we should give them no quarter; and it was with some difficulty we found the combustibles, which are fixed in a skeleton like a carcass; they turn liquid, and water will not extinguish it.'
