Extrait de la note de l'expert
A l'attention spéciale de notre généalogiste et expert en héraldique du forum  :

Nelson's arms were a cross fleury sable, a bend gules, surmounted by another engrailed of the field, charged with three bombs, fired proper, augmented after the Nile (as here) with a chief undulated, argent, thereon waves of the sea, from which a palm tree issuant, between a disabled ship on the dexter and a ruinous battery on the sinister.
He chose as his supporters (who after the Nile bore palm leaves) dexter a sailor armed with a cutlass and pair of pistols supporting a staff thereon hoisted a Commodore's flag gules, sinister a lion rampant in his mouth a broken flag-staff, a tri-coloured flag in his mouth. The arms bear a Viscount's coronet (his English title taking precedence over his Sicilian Dukedom).

The crests of the two helms are, dexter, the Chelengk, or plume of triumph, given to Nelson by the Ottoman Sultan after the Battle of the Nile, and sinister, the stern of a ship inscribed "San Josef", the Spanish battleship he took at the Battle of Cape St Vincent.
His motto, "Palmam qui meruit ferat" [Let he who has earned it take the palm], was also granted after the Nile.
Finally, the achievement includes the insignia of the orders of honour conferred on Nelson: the Bath, the Sicilian Order of St Ferdinand and of Merit, the Ottoman Order of the Cresent, and the Germanic Order of St Joachim.  

Idea En effet, nous remarquons, à gauche, vers le sommet de son blason, la célèbre décoration "Chelengk", évoquée récemment dans ce sujet-ci (voir pages précédentes) :



Suite de la note de l'expert :

The herald George Nayler (1764-1831), had worked closely with Nelson in the original design of his arms and was later to serve as one of the three officials who were deputed by the Admiralty to receive Nelson's body from the Victory.

The original purpose of this splendid document is not known but it may have been intended for the heralds of Sicily.
Nelson had written to Nayler on 19 October 1803 :

"I have sent to Sicily for the Arms of Bronté, and the Heralds College there has sent for my English Arms, in order that they may be enrolled amongst those of the Sicilian Nobility ; therefore you will be so good as to send me out the same sort of thing which I sent to Germany.
I very much doubt that I ever paid for that, and several other things which you have done for me; therefore, I desire (for in a man's trade there are no compliments) that you will send me out your regular bill, for I suppose you cannot live upon air  Eventaille ; and if you are never paid, how is the pot to boil ?

- Gold and enamel Nelson memorial ring commemorating the death of Admiral Nelson at Trafalgar
Early 19th century


Photos : Sotheby's

After the death of Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson at the battle of Trafalgar on the 21st October 1805, memorial rings were distributed by his executors, the Rt. Hon. Earl Nelson and J. Haselwood, to relatives, personal friends and the pall bearers.

Enamelled in black with a white border, each was decorated with the letters N for Nelson surmounted by a viscount’s coronet with seven pearls to commemorate Nelson’s appointment as viscount after the battle of the Nile in 1798, and B for Bronte surmounted by a ducal coronet, representing the Sicilian dukedom of Bronte conferred by Ferdinand IV of the Two Sicilies in 1799, with Trafalgar beneath.
The hoops were engraved to the outside with ‘PALMAN QUI MERUIT FERAT’ (Let him bear the palm of victory who has won it) which was granted to Nelson in 1778 and taken from the poem ‘Ad ventos’ written by John Jotin in 1727.


Photos : Sotheby's

Approximately fifty-eight of these memorial rings were distributed by the executors of Nelson’s will, thirty-one going to members of Nelson’s immediate family, while a manuscript held in the British Museum lists the original recipients of the rings.

- THE OPENING ENGAGEMENT AT TRAFALGAR; H.M.S. 'ROYAL SOVEREIGN' RAKING THE STERN OF THE SPANISH FLAGSHIP 'SANTA ANA'
By John Wilson Carmichael (1799-1868)



Photo : Sotheby's

Note au catalogue (extraits)

Britain’s famous victory over the combined Spanish and French fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 was the Royal Navy’s greatest victory - affirming Britain’s maritime supremacy and dashing Napoleon’s ambitions for an invasion.

Lacking a numerical advantage but confident in the superior seamanship and gunnery of his crews, Lord Nelson devised a bold and unorthodox military tactic to split the enemy line by attacking it in two columns.
It proved a masterful stroke, and his death in the course of his greatest triumph immortalised his memory in the nation’s history.

In the present painting, Carmichael depicts the decisive moment when Rear Admiral Lord Collingwood, in command of ‘Royal Sovereign’, broke through the Spanish line and rounded on ‘Santa Ana’ – the huge 112-gun Spanish flagship of Vice-Admiral de Alava.



All fifty of 'Royal Sovereign’s' port broadside, double shotted, poured into ‘Santa Ana’s’ unprotected stern at a range of thirty yards. Then, putting his helm hard over, Collingwood ranged up the lee side of the Spaniard for the coup de grace.
It proved the brilliance of Nelson’s strategy, and Collingwood’s manoeuvre was completed even before ‘Victory’ herself entered the fray at the head of the other column.


Et enfin, last but not least... Wink

- LARGE FRAGMENT OF THE UNION FLAG, BELIEVED TO HAVE FLOWN FROM HMS VICTORY AT THE BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR
Battle of Trafalgar--HMS Victory, 'The Victory Jack'

Comprising eight panels of red, white and blue hand-woven woollen bunting, hand-stitched together to form part of the bottom-right (or top-left) quadrant of the Union flag, hemmed at the bottom (or top), hem turned over enclosing c.460mm of twine, crudely torn at the edges, c.860 x 920 mm, mounted, framed, and glazed (frame size 1125 x 1125mm), c.1801-1805

Provenance : "Captain W.H. Dobbie, RN", presumably William Hugh Dobbie, 1771-1830, who served in the East Indies Station from 1790 to 1808; gifted by him to the Museum of the Royal United Services Institute (...)


Photos : Sotheby's

Note au catalogue (extraits) :

Nelson's ships sailed into battle at Trafalgar flying the national flag rather than just their squadron colours, as a result of an order issued by Nelson in the days before the battle:
"When in the presence of an Enemy, all the Ships under my command are to bear white Colours [i.e. St George's Ensign], and a Union Jack is to be suspended from the fore top-gallant stay" (10 October 1805).

HMS Victory consequently flew two Union flags and a St George's Ensign, which were returned to England with the ship and the body of Nelson.

These battle ensigns, unique patriotic mementoes of Nelson's final and greatest victory, were later woven into the solemn and dignified series of ceremonials that marked his state funeral in January 1806.
The body lay in state at the Painted Hall at Greenwich for four days before processing upriver in a funeral barge with a flotilla of naval escorts, disembarking at Whitehall Stairs and resting overnight in the Admiralty.

The following day, 9 January, a vast procession followed Nelson's remains to St Paul's Cathedral, the site of the funeral. Incorporated into the funeral cortege was a group of 48 seamen and Marines from HMS Victory, who bore with them the ship's three battle ensigns and were, according to one eyewitness, "repeatedly and almost continually cheered as they passed along".



At the conclusion of the funeral service, with the coffin placed at the heart of the cathedral beneath Wren's great dome, the sailors were supposed to fold the flags and place them reverently on the coffin.



Most of the surviving fragments of the Victory's flags are much smaller than the current piece.
Small fragments of white and blue bunting, no more than 12cm in length, have appeared at auction and other similar fragments are found at the National Maritime Museum and other institutional collections.
Only two complete Union jacks that were used as battle ensigns at Trafalgar survive: one from HMS Minotaur (National Maritime Museum), the other from HMS Spartiate.
