URUGUAY..  I have two photographs of the polar expedition that rescued explorer Nordenskjold in 1904.  Both photographs were taken in Antarctic.  One shows the whole tripulation posing like a football squad, including a small dog.  The other has been taken from the ice and the corvette (Uruguay) can be seen moored alongside the ice-shelf while several sailors are digging a trench in the ice.  I would like to know the names of the tripulation.  The photographs have some words on their backs which I presume to be Norwegian or Swedish.  I can be contacted at cobra_700@hotmail.com

With her mizzen top already gone and her sails aloft having received severe punishment, Victory breaks through the line behind the French flagship Bucentaure, delivering a shattering broadside into her stern.  So severe was this opening fire that the Bucentaure was effectively put out of the rest of the battle, although Admiral Villeneuve himself was to miraculously survive the carnage.  Beyong Victory can be seen the French Redoubtable, which is receiving fire from Victorys starboard guns, and the Spanish San Leandro is in the extreme distance.  Most of Victorys stunsails have been cut away, but it was her stunsail booms that became entangled with the rigging of the Redoubtable when she put her helm to port and ran onto her.  Admiral Nelson fell shortly afterward, having received a fatal wound from a musket ball fired by a French sharpshooter in Redoubtables mizzen fighting top.  The Temeraire can be seen approaching the fray to the right.
