More than 100 people ate a Nelson-themed menu on October 21, exactly 207 years after the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

Nelson expert Jeffrey Bonas spoke at length about Nelson, and items at the charity auction included a model of HMS Victory and the first copy of the book Remember Nelson.

The dinner was held at The Hoste in Burnham Market, one mile from the Burnham Thorpe site where Nelson was born in 1758.
