They told us of your victories but not of the price you paid!
When Captain Hardy tells Lady Hamilton about Nelson's death, nearly all the details of the combat are wrong. Hardy says they were fighting the French flagship Redoutable, after approaching under heavy fog. He also says Nelson died at sunset. Actually, the French flagship was the Bucentaure, not the Redoutable, and the heavy fog had cleared since the morning. Also, Nelson was pronounced dead by 16:30, not sunset. Moreover, during the battle scenes, several ships can be seen exploding. In reality, only one ship, the French 74 gunner Achilles, blew up.
