"More than 150 ships from 35 countries converged on the English channel this week for the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar . . . To avoid offending the French, however, the re-enactment was presented as a battle between an unnamed "red team" and an unnamed "blue team." Anna Tribe, 75, the great-great-great-grandaughter of (Admiral Lord) Nelson and his mistress, Lady Emma Hamilton, said . . 'I am sure that the French and the Spaniards are adult enough to appreciate that we did win that battle.'"
