Virtual Pickle Night 2020

We marked the 215th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar with a special online gathering during the Coronavirus lockdown period. The special video event was attended by members of the American Friends of NMRN, as well as friends from around the world. We were greeted by Prof. Dominic Tweddle, Director General of the National Museum of the Royal Navy. We were honored to have First Sea Lord Adm. Radakin join us with news and updates from Portsmouth. Guests were treated to exclusive footage of HMS Victory’s hull under restoration, and a guided tour of Victory’s historical contents.

Gifts made towards Pickle Night fund ongoing restoration and conservation efforts at the Museum, including HMS Victory and other significant articles of naval history.
