Nelson's Avenger and the Smugglers of Plymouth Sound
by Jack Spence 2009 - a member of the Rame History Group.

On 21st October 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar, Midshipman John Pollard of HMS Victory shot the French marksman who killed
Vice Admiral Lord Nelson. Since that momentous day he has been renowned as the 'Avenger of Nelson'. This is the
story of Commander John Pollard's (1786-1868) fascinating life. Born the son of a Cornish smuggler, John Pollard joined
the Royal Navy at the age of eleven, achieved a long and distinguished naval career and earned a place in history that far
exceeded the expectations of a smuggler's son.

To order, please forward a cheque for 13 per copy (inc P&P) to Jack Spence, 10 Armada Road, Cawsand, Cornwall PL10 1PQ.
