Seems a remarkable story. Why have the Brits retreated?

Must have had those marines or SBS people who battled so bravely in Iran a few years back as crew

On Thursday morning, French fishermen were bracing themselves to "restage the battle of Trafalgar" as they prepared to take on the Royal Navy.

Jean-Claude La Vaullée, skipper of Le Cach, said: "I’ve refuelled the boat – we’re ready to restage the Battle of Trafalgar."

The furious Mr La Vaullée, who has been fishing off Jersey for more than 40 years, said he had now been given the right to "11 hours fishing a year" in the area.


I guess he was too busy to read a book about the Battle of Trafalgar.

I can see the Paris municipal engraver getting his tools ready to carve it into the Arc de Triomphe, right next to Fuentes de Oñoro, another 'victory' that wasn't :P
