Lord Horatio Nelsons Prayer
1st October 1805
May the Great God,whom I worship,grant to my
Country and for the benefit of Europe in general,a
great and glorious Victory:and may no misconduct,
in any one,tarnish it:and may humanity after victory
be the predominant feature in the British Fleet.
For myself individually,I commit my life to Him
who made me and may His blessing light upon my
endeavours for serving my Country faithfully.
To Him I resign myself and the just cause which is
entrusted to me to defend.
Nelson wore his undress uniform at the Battle of
Trafalgar while aboard HMS Victory.
