A new book telling the personal stories of Nelson’s Band of Brothers is out now.
Edited by Captain Peter Hore, a former Greenwich resident, and published by Seaforth Publishing, the hardback title explores the lives on Nelson’s captains.
Two of the entries in the book have been contributed by Anthony Cross from the Warwick Leadlay Gallery in Greenwich. Anthony is, of course, also the President of Greenwich Historical Society.
Brand new photography of the final resting place of many of the captains has been commissioned, some of which was taken in Greenwich such as at the mausoleum where Admiral Hardy is buried.
Nelson’s Band of Brothers: Lives and Memorials has been produced in association with the 1805 Club.
