Default Re: The Spanish Armada of 1588

GE Bill,

Having reviewed the Armada and Trafalgar involvement by the Spanish Navy with an acquaintance at the Spanish Naval Museum in Cartegena [Retired Naval Captain] and had several discussions over dinner with retired and serving Spanish Naval Officers I find that whilst they accept everything we say about Trafalgar, they refute our claim to victory over the Armada stating that it was the weather that defeated the Armada. A point on which we always agree to differ and have another tot.

Nevertheless I always read your inputs, on whatever subject, with great interest, keep them coming.
