    I hope that an appropriate museum or trust is able to acquire this item, rather than it go into some private collection. A little surprising, actually, that there aren’t several surviving flags (jacks, ensigns, commission pennants, signal flags) from the battle, given that even at the time it (and nelson’s death) was considered an event of great historical importance.
