Robert Mason: Horatio Nelson

How courage and determination triumph over injury and infection

WED 21 OCT 6pm | Zoom-Online

Horatio Nelson is one of our greatest naval heroes whose exploits gave Britain maritime supremacy for a hundred years. The loss of his right arm and use of his right eye are well known, in contrast to his other injuries sustained in battle and numerous brushes with infectious disease albeit in his short life of 47 years. This lecture explores these in relation to his career in the Navy.

Robert Mason was emeritus consultant upper gastrointestinal surgeon and Professor of Surgery at Guys and St Thomas Hospitals prior to retirement in 2015. He now volunteers at the National Maritime Museum where he gives gallery talks on Admiral Nelson.
