  3. #HISTORY#
    HMS Pickle was at the Battle of Trafalgar and she was the first ship to bring the news of Nelsonís victory to Great Britain, arriving at Falmouth on 4 November 1805.

    During the Battle of Trafalgar in 21 October 1805, HMS Pickle kept well back from the fighting as she was too small to take part in the battle. She was stationed to the north-west of the weather line, where Nelson was leading HMS Victory into battle. Vice Admiral Collingwood, who had assumed command after the death of Nelson, chose HMS Pickle to carry his dispatches describing the battle and announcing Nelson's death. 

    HMS Pickle was a topsail schooner of the Royal Navy. She was built in 1799 in Bermuda and she was a civilian vessel of six guns named Sting. She was purchased by Vice-Admiral Lord Hugh Seymour in 1800 for £2,500 to be used as a tender on the Jamaica station. 

    HMS Pickle took part in the French Revolutionary Wars and Napoleonic Wars between 1800 and 1805.
