I never thought of this before - but of course Victory never fired another broadside in anger after 21st October 1805.

This point was made in an article by the company that provided the pyrotechnics for the "staged" broadside fired by Victory last month.

Here is film of the event on You Tube.

The same company provided the show for the Trafalgar bi-centenary celebrations in 2005.
