Excerpt from Mystery Ships (Trapping the U Boat) There is a tale in Devonshire that Sir Francis Drake has t only listened for his drum during the last three hundred years, but has also heard and answered it on more than one naval occasion. It was heard, as the men of the Brixham trawlers can testify, about a hundred years ago, when a little man, under the pseudonym of Nelson (for all Devonshire kws that Nelson was a reincarnation of Sir Francis) went sailing by to Trafalgar.
