Horatio Nelson

Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) was a British admiral & was one of the first to go against the conventional tactics of his time by cutting through the enemy's lines in the Napoleonic Wars. Horatio became blind in one eye early in his Royal Navy career. In those days a retreat or surrender was shown via a system of signal flags, when friendly or enemy ships would display the flags. Horatio would bring his telescope to his blind eye & say, "Carry on with the attack, I see no signals."
