语录编辑

  • 英格兰期盼人人尽忠职守。
    • Famous signal to the British fleet before the battle of Trafalgar, as quoted in Life of Nelson, Ch. 9; Initially dictated as: "England confides that every man shall do his duty." The signaller pointed out that "expects" was in the signals alphabet, but "confides" was not and so had to be spelt out, taking longer, and Nelson agreed to the change.
    • Variant:
    • England expects every officer and man to do his duty this day.
    • As reported in The London Times (26 December 1805)
