Some Norwich Sea Cadets have visited the Nelson and Norfolk exhibition at Norwich Castle to pay their respects to the county's most famous son.
The Norwich Sea Cadets - who are based on the T.S (Training Ship) Lord Nelson berthed on the River Wensum - paid a trip the the exhibition celebrating the life and legacy of Admiral Lord Nelson on Thursday.
They enjoyed looking at the extraordinary array of objects on display, including an early French Tricolour flag captured by Admiral Lord Nelson's men from the warship Le Généreux and gifted to the City of Norwich. Other items included artist William Beechey's 1801 portrait of Admiral Lord Nelson and the coat the great naval hero wore at the Battle of the Nile. The exhibition is considered to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see many important objects associated with Admiral Lord Nelson displayed together.
