Lord Nelson's famous signal ("England expects that every man will do his duty") flies from the Victory (11:50). Turner shows the signal flags flying from the main-mast, though in reality they would have been flown from the mizzen-mast and were replaced with the signal for "engage the enemy more closely" once the battle commenced.
The mizzen-topmast falls (13:00).
The Achille is on fire in the background (late afternoon).
The Redoutable sinks in the foreground (following day).
