White Ensign to fly over Exeter to commemorate the Battle of Trafalgar

The Exeter Flotilla is preparing to commemorate the Battle of Trafalgar.

On Sunday (October 20) the White Ensign will once again fly over the city as the Exeter Flotilla marks the Battle of Trafalgar at an 11:30am service in Exeter Cathedral.

The Battle of Trafalgar took place on October 21 in 1805 and saw the Royal Navy emerge the victor against a combined fleet of the French and Spanish navies during the War of the Third Coalition.

The service will be attended by the Deputy Lieutenant for Devon, Mr Brian Wills-Hope, the High Sheriff of Devon, Captain Simon Martin, the Lord Mayor of Exeter, Councillor Peter Holland, and senior officers of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines.

Music will be provided by the band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, Lympstone. The service is open to all.
