French Connection In Nelson’s Santa Cruz Defeat

There’s an important but overlooked matter of honour to be addressed at this year’s 218th anniversary of Admiral Horatio Nelson’s failed attack on Santa Cruz. The Asociación Histórico Cultural Gesta 25 de Julio will re-enact key battle scenes in the Tenerife capital on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 July. As well as celebrating local fortitude it also recognises a deep respect for Nelson which saw him leave Tenerife minus his shattered right arm but with supplies and gifts from the victors.
