Nelson was a pupil of the Paston School in Norfolk.

Scroll down to read the Paston School Song, which mentions Nelson 'our proudest boast.'

Note that the rhythm indicates that Trafalgar is pronounced Traffle-GAR. This was as late as 1952!

The school motto is in French. I wonder what Nelson thought of that?
