The Norwich Branch of the Royal Naval Association recently held their annual Trafalgar Night Dinner at Wensum Valley Golf Club, with 92 members, their partners and guest attending. The commemoration of Trafalgar Night is a time honoured tradition in the Royal Navy, held on the 21 October each year to remember the victory of Great Britain by the Royal Navy at The Battle of Trafalgar, in which Lord Nelson gave his life.
Lord Nelson was born in the county of Norfolk, and the Norwich Branch are extremely proud of this link with one of Great Britain’s most acclaimed sailors, and as a consequence the Norwich Branch hold their Trafalgar Night celebrations in high esteem.
During the course of the evenings celebrations we were joined by our special guest, who this year saw Lt Cdr Anna Townsend SMETO / Senior Naval Officer East of England in attendance. A raffle was held during the evening with proceeds going to Branch funds, finally the evening was topped off with live entertainment.
