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 - November

17th November 1798: Rear Admiral Horatio Nelson to His Excellency the Admiral commanding the Ottoman Fleet: "The Grand Signor having condescended to notice my earnest endeavours to serve the cause of humanity against a set of impious men, I should feel sorry to miss an opportunity of expressing to you how anxious I am for the success of the Ottoman arms, and how happy your Excellency would make me by telling me how I can be most useful to you.'
