What is your favorite fact about Horatio Nelson? Mine is when he fought a polar bear when he was only 14.

Although the episode with the polar bear is a close second, my particular favourite was during the Battle of Copenhagen, when Nelson received an order to withdraw from Admiral Parker. According to legend, Nelson, who had no intention of retreat, simply held the telescope to his blind eye and loudly proclaimed “I really do not see the signal!” before going on to win the battle.
